Ryan S. has had a long-enduring fascination with science. Not surprisingly, that led to a Medical Assisting degree and a 10-year career in healthcare, both in administrative and clinical roles. Now, as an EyeWorks Paraoptometric Technician, her natural curiosity and easy, friendly nature ensures that each interaction with patients is both fresh and rewarding. What does she enjoy most about her job here? “I love being on the team of a locally-owned business, and engaging with patients.” She is charmingly disarming, which gives Ryan a competitive edge toward Winner status during card games and board games with her husband and two children. Her opponents may not even mind when she skunks them at cribbage. She’s also an avid reader, a hiker, and a dog mom to two active rescue pups.
