    Jennifer Goocher has worked for me for over 20 years and is a Licensed Optician in Arkansas and hold her ABOC certication. She is very knowledgeable and dedicated to her patients. She has a special needs child and has a special love and understanding of underprivileged children and adults. She has a warm personality and loves people.

  3. I’d like to nominate Mike Sutherlin. Mike has traveled with the Missouri VOSH group on over 20 mission trips. After retiring from Sutherlin Optical (an Essilor Partner Lab), not only has he continued travelling on the mission trips at his own expense, he also fabricates over 2,000 pairs of glasses per year in his basement at home. He was inducted into The Vision Council Lab Division Hall of Fame this year, largely due to that contribution. He is a true difference maker.

    I hope he will receive strong consideration for this distinction.

  4. I would love to join your program, if you go to Vietnam. Please let me know how I can be a part of your mission trip.

  5. My name is Miguel Rodriguez from Fava & Maria Eye Associates in Lebanon, PA, I would like to nominate Dr. James Mascoli. He is one of our optometrist and for the last 10 years he has gone to Haiti and given the Hatian people free eye exams. He would also take new and used frames from here and get labs as well as our own practice to donate lenses. we would edge them at our location and he would ship them back to be dispensed. He will use his own vacation time and even incur some of the travel costs. Not to mention the conditions of his accomodations while in Haiti but he realizes his inconvinience is temporary and and the difference he will make to thier lives would be greatly appreciated. This humanitarian doctor deserves recognition for his personal sacrafice.
