Stephanie Espinosa

Stephanie Espinosa

Stephanie was thrown into the optical world 5 years ago when she started at a small private practice as a front desk receptionist. Having no knowledge of anything optical besides "having a lot of astigmatism," she spent her time learning the ins and outs of the optical practice. Within a year, she passed her ABOC and was a full-time optician. After a brief stint at a corporate store, she joined Shamir in 2018 as an Account Executive in Southern California. During that time she spent her days meeting new doctors and optical staff and helping grow practices and train about product. After making the decision to go back to school, she is now back to being an optician and helping patients see once again. In her spare time, she loves hanging out with her 4 kids and running a podcast with her best friend, Maddie. "I am so excited to take Tuesday Talks to the podcast format and help reach even more women in the optical industry!
