At Piedmont Eye Center, we prioritize offering the best patient care we can. That wouldn’t be possible without our amazing staff! This month, we’re introducing you to our team member Leanne!
What is your role at Piedmont Eye Center?
I am currently a scribe/ophthalmic assistant for Dr. Vogel. I also take part in the retina research program.
How long have you worked at Piedmont?
I’ve worked here for about four years now.
What do you love most about your job?
I love all of my coworkers, as well as the patients I’ve built relationships with over the years. It’s so rewarding to see patients so thankful for their vision and the treatments we provide.
What is one thing you wish every patient knew?
I wish all patients knew how sacred their vision is and how quickly it can be taken away, especially working in the field of retina.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love to spend time with my husband and of course giving him the honey-do list. I am always finding something I want to fix up or rearrange! Now that we are starting a family with a little one on the way it is so important to get in good quality family time.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
A blanket—I take one everywhere. You never know when you’re going to get cold!
If money was not a concern, what would you do every day if you didn’t work?
I would travel the world. My husband and I got our first taste of traveling when we went to Jamaica a few years ago and just fell in love with experiencing different cultures. My next dream destination is Greece!
If you could have dinner with any one person, living or dead, who would it be?
My husband’s grandfather. He always knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Coke or Pepsi? Coffee or tea?
Coke/Coffee for sure!
Do you have any words of advice to share?
Don’t take the little things in life for granted—you’ll miss them one day and realize how important they were to you.
