Star Allen is our newest team member. She joined Sept 2019. She is joining the team as our office manager and head optician. She is from a small town in Oklahoma. She started her journey into optical at Blake Bush Family Eye Care in 2013. She moved to Denton Texas in 2016 and joined the Wink Eye Care optical with Dr. Tran shortly after her move. She went from optician to office manager within 1 year. She also specializes in vision insurance eligibility and claims. She will be using her background and experience in both retail and optical to lead our team to success. Her bubbly personality and infectious laugh will be sure to brighten your day. Her favorite part of being an optician is helping you find the right frame for your face.
“To me, optical is so cool, because it’s fashion and retail meets medical. Your lenses are a medical device to help you see, but your frames are definitely a reflection of you. Do you want something funky? Do you want something neutral? Whatever you want. I can help you find it!”
Fun Fact: Star loves to dye her hair. We call her our chameleon because she is always changing her hair color. She has had her hair color, red, pink, purple, blue, blonde, brunette, green, and all the other colors of the rainbow.
