Crossing Paths With People [Sandy Brubaker]
It's been almost 28 years since I changed my first set of temple tips and entered into the Optical Industry.
I have always LOVED the fashion part of my job. New frame styles with fresh designs and vibrant colors get me all geeked to help make people look and feel great. I really do try to make the whole experience fun.
All the advancements in lens technology afford me unlimited opportunities to impress everyone and a deep pocket helps too.
But I would say my passion is for people and making them feel good.
It makes me feel like a hero when I solve a problem, repair something broken or find a solution. But one of the most powerful tools I work on is practicing active listening skills. I have come to believe that if I make a conscience decision to be present, as I am engaged with each person, I can make a difference in my corner of the world.
