Digna has been with Moorestown Eye for well over 10 years and she has become our patients’ go to optical assistant. She can tell you right away whether a frame looks perfect on you or whether you need to keep looking! Many patients are so attached to Digna, they don’t want anyone else helping them with their glasses. (Sorry Patti and Gina—we know you are great too!!) Digna is a west coast girl who has become a NJ girl and she often helps our patients who speak Spanish. She has 2 grown children and a perfect grand-dog who even comes to visit Moorestown Eye sometimes! She currently serves on the board of directors for The Leroy W. Homer, Jr. Foundation. The mission of The LeRoy W. Homer Jr. Foundation is to support young adults who wish to pursue careers as professional pilots in memory of LeRoy Homer, First Officer of United Airlines #93 when it crashed in Shanksville, PA on September 11th, 2001.
Gina has been working at Moorestown Eye Associates for almost 8 years but she's been working in eye care for over 35 years (she says she can't remember back that far!). Her favorite hobbies include snow skiing, reading and binge watching Game of Thrones!!! Her co-workers beg you, please don't get her started on Game of Thrones! She says, "I love coming to work to spend time with my co-workers, the doctors and my clients. I love helping people pick glasses!"
Patti joined our optical staff several years ago and quickly became an important part of our team! She is incredibly patient with people who struggle to make a decision on what frame style works best for them and she can easily demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of various options to perfectly match a patients concerns. In a short time she was able to grasps the intricacies of vision insurance so that our patients can maximize their insurance benefits. In an ironic twist, before joining Moorestown Eye to help people select their glasses frames, she worked in a frame store- a picture frame store! I guess she was destined to always work with frames!
Moorestown Eye has been privileged to have Cathi as a member of our eye care team for over 10 years! Not only does she serve as a technician and assistant to the doctor, but she also takes on some of the bookkeeping responsibilities of the office as well. When not at work, Cathi is incredibly devoted to her wonderful family- you’ll often find her cheering on the sidelines of her grandkids' games! Dr. Kim always says Cathi is one of the kindest people she has ever met and we are sure our patients would agree!
Chelsea joined Moorestown eye in 2015 as a technician and she juggles a very busy schedule. She is currently studying radiology and she recently expanded her role in our office to handle both technician and receptionist duties. When asked about her job she replied,"my favorite part of the job is all the amazing staff I work with-like my second family!"
Angela has been working at Moorestown Eye Associates for almost a year. Drs. Les and Kim stole her from a local restaurant, Francos in Marlton, when they noticed her winning personality and smile! Often patients describe her as the "super bubbly, happy" technician" and people think she is the doctors' daughter. ( she's not- but anyone would be pleased to have her as their daughter!) Angela’s favorite thing about working at Moorestown Eye Associates is being with everyone with whom she works! She also really enjoys ballroom dancing and singing, and anything that has to do with music!
Amanda has recently joined Moorestown Eye in our technician department. She is an animal lover who owns several pets, including a horse named Wrangler. She enjoys drawing, crafting, and horseback riding in her free time. She is a HUGE David Bowie fan. So if our office sound system is playing David Bowie when you walk in, Amanda changed the station again!
Jordan joined Moorestown Eye after deciding it was time for a career change. A licensed cosmetologist, she's always got the right "eye" to help you decide between the last two frames when you cant decide which is better, one or two! She loves being around art and being creative. Her favorite tv shows are The Office and Friends and she loves spending time with her family and her dog Drake.
Jenn has been with Moorestown Eye Associates since April 2015 and she feel as though the entire staff at MEA is like a second family. Her favorite part of the job is helping patients select new glasses- She just loves the look on their faces when we create that "makeover" type moment with a dramatic before and after just by changing out their frame! When not at work, she's spending time with family and friends, cooking/baking, and spoiling her dog Paco.
Moorestown Eye was incredibly lucky when Annie decided to make a career change and join us in April 2016. In addition to being the smiling face that greets you when you walk in the door, Annie also spends time at the beach and BOXING! ( Look out-- I guess we better be nice to her!) If you want to see her outside of the office-- you may just catch her at her favorite place, The Maple Shade Custard Stand!!
Nicole is our office friend and assistant who occasionally fills in when we need a little extra help- especially on weekends. She is a 4th-grade teacher in the Cherry Hill district after recently completing her masters degree in education. Nicole is an all-around assistant in the office, mainly helping out at reception, but also filling in here and there throughout all the departments. The best thing about having Nicole in our office – she’s like family to Drs. Les and Kim! They’ve known her since she was a little girl and they are thrilled that they will have her here to help the office when she has extra time.
Ellie is one of the wonderful receptionists at Moorestown Eye. She grew up in Indiana, but came to NJ in time to graduate in the same graduating class as Drs. Friedman's daughter. When not at work, she enjoys hanging out with her family, being active, and being a dog mom. She also loves going to the beach, seeing live music, and most of all going to Disney world !! Her favorite food of all time is mac and cheese!
You never know who you will meet at Moorestown Eye. Penny is a service dog Dr. Friedman adopted from One Love Animal Rescue in Mt Laurel. She goes with Dr. Friedman when she sees patients at Brightview Assisted Living and she sometimes comes to our office as well. She helps patients with dementia or anxiety feel more comfortable with the eye exam process. Plus, she just brings smiles and slobbery kisses to our entire staff!
