Our Team

Glenn: Owner & Head Optician

Glenn, a master optician, has been licensed in Washington state since 1980, and a practicing optician for 41 years. He served a three-year apprenticeship under five highly trained and skilled opticians. Taking that training further, he specializes in very complex prescription eyewear fittings, sport and recreational specific eyewear, and pioneered many advances in pediatric eyewear fitting techniques. His background in makeup and color analysis influences his ability to select beautiful and stylish eyewear with an artful flair. Impossible is just not in Glenn’s vocabulary.


Hannah is the store’s “superstar” apprentice. She started with the store in May 2016. She quickly took on the role of production, ensuring that all lenses are carefully edged to perfection. Her technical knowledge serves her well when handling difficult prescriptions, and calm demeanor and sense of humor help her succeed in opticianry.
Hannah plans to sit for her license in the fall of 2019. When she isn’t working, she can be found riding on the Burke-Gilman trail.


Nicole Flanagan is a Licensed Dispensing Optician in Washington State. After apprenticing and getting her license in Wenatchee in September of 2014, Nicole joined our team two years later in October 2016. Her warmth, drive to succeed, and attention to detail have made her a phenomenal manager and optician. Nicole handles frame styling, matching of prescription to lens design and frame, and troubleshooting. She is passionate about volunteer work, and can often be found serving her community.
