Chelsea, Office Manager, ABOC
Chelsea began her optical career eight years ago in an optometry boutique downtown Santa Monica. She immediately became passionate about optics after learning the amount of technology behind every lens and frame design. Chelsea decided to continue her career and become a Certified Optician through the American Board of Opticianry. Chelsea strives to have every customer leaving excited and confident about their new pair of eyewear and can’t wait to work with them the following year. If you have any questions ranging from ordering glasses to how our office runs, she is your go-to person. When Chelsea isn’t working, she’s convincing her husband they need more plants or rearranging their house for the millionth time. They also have an adorable Black Lab, Carter and a one of a kind fluffy black and white cat named Charley.

Lauren completed both her ABO and NCLE certificate with the National Career Education, graduating at the top of her class with the Presidential Award of Achievement. She has sixteen years of exceptional customer service all revolving around her passion in health and wellness, making her a wonderful asset to our TBVC family. Lauren loves learning about all the new styles and helping her customers find the perfect fit, leaving patients extremely excited to pick up their new glasses. Of course, the frame is the fun part, but as Lauren stated, “the lenses are actually what makes a perfectly complete order”. You can usually find Lauren and her family purposefully getting lost on a trail in the mountains or off kayaking on a lake. They also have a sassy German Shepherd and sweet and loving Shepard Labrador.
Donna, Lead Receptionist & Technician
Donna was inspired to work in Optometry after having so many great experiences with staff during her own appointments. She absolutely loves meeting new people, is dedicated to helping patients enhance their lives through vision and enjoys the welcoming family feel a private practice can create. If you have any questions or concerns, she is a wonderful person to start with and might even have delicious chocolates to share. When she isn’t helping keep our office running smoothly, you will find her enjoying time with her adorable puppy Codi, creating fantastic paintings, and frequently getting lost in the magical world at Disneyland. She would like to leave you with her favorite quote: “All you need is faith, trust and a little pixie dust” – Peter Pan
