Heather is one of our Licensed Opticians at Vivid Vision
Heather is one of our Licensed Opticians at Vivid Vision who hails from “The Rock” but has made Alberta her home for the last 13 years. Heather received her Optician’s Accreditation from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) and became a member of the Opticians Association of Canada in January of 2007. Of course Heather brought the Newfie wit and charm with her and patients of all ages appreciate her kindness and great sense of humour. Heather wasn’t always an Optician – she also had careers in dental assisting and restaurant management. But all of her professions have one thing in common – people. Heather’s commitment to her patients, strong work ethic and stellar customer service puts her miles ahead of her peers. Her mission is to help people achieve the very best vision possible while looking great at the same time. Heather is excited about the new equipment that has been brought to the office. More testing can be done with quicker results. Heather met her husband, Brett, of eight years here in Alberta and they enjoy spending their down time with friends and family and of course, their two Cocker Spaniels!
Roxy is one of the wonderful office administrators at Vivid Vision
Roxy is one of the wonderful office administrators at Vivid Vision, she is certainly no stranger to the people of Fort Saskatchewan and the surrounding community. Roxy was raised on a farm outside of Lamont and has been working in the Optical business in Fort Saskatchewan for 28 years!! She started back in 1990 with Dr. Marsh at what was called Intown Optical. This business then became ICU Optical and eventually Vivid Vision when Janet Vervynck took over in 2008. Roxy is also a “people person” and compliments the existing staff with her organizational skills, attention to detail, a willingness to go above and beyond for her patients and of course, her infectious laugh. Because of Roxy’s exceptional administrative skills, the office runs like a well-oiled machine – appointments get booked, supplies get ordered, patient files are maintained! Roxy has been married for 29 years to her husband, Scott, and they have two grown boys with whom they enjoy spending their free time.
Janet is an 'old school'optician with over 40 years of experience.
There were no computers, 1-800 numbers, e-mails or internet when she started. Solving a problem took a lot more ingenuity, as there were fewer resources and choices. In the 1980's she was an advocate of the progression of Opticians in Canada and assisted in developing the course that is now used at NAIT to educate opticians. Being a member of the Alberta Opticians Association Examination Board for many years, kept her busy making sure new opticians were getting the proper training. She has seen the evolution of the frame and lens design industry and the introduction and advancement of fashion eyewear. Janet uses her knowledge to choose the best and most economical products for your particular needs and wants. Her skills also include repairs and the fabrication of lenses. Janet was one of the first women to become a licensed optician in Alberta and has been inducted into the Alberta College of Opticians Hall of Fame for her achievements.
