Meet the experienced eye health care professionals at Dr. Specs Optical, proudly serving our valued Penticton clients.
Debbie is originally from Newfoundland and has been in the optical business since 1993. At that time she started working for Dr. Specs Optical in Kelowna, and has held many positions within the company such as admin assistant, optician, store manager, franchise coordinator, and finally director of operations. When the owner decided to retire in April 2012, Debbie decided to purchase the Penticton location.
Debbie has twice been a finalist for "Community Leadership and Volunteerism" in Kelowna's Women of Distinction Awards. As well, she was an entrepreneur nominee in Penticton's 2013 Women Front & Centre Gala.
Giorgia is originally from Italy. When she immigrated to Canada she believed it was important to be a stay-at-home mom and raise her family. Giorgia and Debbie have been friends for years and when Debbie needed someone to train as a receptionist, Giorgia was the perfect choice. Giorgia is enjoying working with patients and learning about optics and vision.
Miki was born on Vancouver Island, and started off in the optical business in 2020 cutting and fitting lenses. In 2021 she moved to Penticton, looking for a nice town to raise her two children in, and found her place with Dr Specs. Miki’s favourite part of working in the optical business is that every patient and every pair of glasses is a new and different experience.
