~ Your Dedicated Eye Staff ~
 
Angie - Patient Coordinator, Insurance and Billing Specialist
A jack-of-all trades with more than twelve years of experience in both patient-care administration and lenses, Angie brings her feisty sense of humor and friendly personality to our patients.

"I like knowing I can be myself everyday. I like talking to our patients, getting to know them, and having fun at work."

When not keeping many balls in the air at Cedar Rapids Eye Care, Angie enjoys spending time with friends and family, her two young children’s activities, training horses, and trail riding.
 
Jean - Patient Coordinator
After spending ten years working in an optical lab, Jean joined Cedar Rapids Eye Care to administer guest services.

"The people are the best part of my job - both the patients and the family atmosphere in the office."

In her spare time, Jean is an amazing crafter and baker who spoils her coworkers with treats like pink champagne, black raspberry, and red velvet cake balls.
 
Laura - Patient Coordinator, Insurance and Billing Specialist
Often mistaken for her sister, Dr. Kara, Laura specializes in consulting with patients about their insurance coverage.

"I really enjoy working closely with parents and connecting them with the hope of vision therapy. So often they have been struggling to find answers."

On her own time, Laura and her husband Brent enjoy time by the pool with friends and family and being entertained by their young daughter’s many marvelous talents.
 
Brandi - Patient Coordinator, Insurance and Billing Specialist
Flexing her time between the office and her at-home work-station, Brandi enjoys the best of both worlds.

"I get to spend time visiting with our great patients and have much-needed time to dig into insurance."

Outside the office, Brandi just finished remodeling her 1962 vintage camper. Ask her about her secret to catching your limit the next time you go trout fishing. Hint: Velveeta.
 
Denise - ABO Certified Optician, Optique Manager, Contact Lens Technician & Frame Stylist
The leader of the Optique since 2007, Denise has broad experience in managing the competing demands of patients, staff, business reps, and doctors with her polished professionalism. She enjoys the fast pace, diversity, and challenges of her job. Denise appreciates the high level of customer care our patients receive.

"Despite what the economy is doing, our customers can always rely on us for the same level of service and support. We won't cut corners on the best care."

When not in charge of the Optique, Denise enjoys creating opulent wedding and birthday cakes and spending time with her three children and nine grandchildren.
 
Erin - ABO Certified Optician, Contact Lens Technician & Frame Stylist
Erin started with Cedar Rapids Eye Care more than thirty years ago (when she was four.) Erin is a certified optometric assistant who enjoys fitting patients with contact lenses. "I love seeing the positive changes contact lenses can bring to patients - from a fourteen-year-old gaining self confidence to an athlete no longer hassling with managing glasses during rigorous workouts. Contact lenses can make such a huge difference."
 
Kevin - ABO Certified Optician, Contact Lens Technician & Frame Stylist
Bringing twenty-one years of experience to the Optique, Kevin knows how to connect patients with the right frame and make it a fun experience.

"I also like to meet with reps to find the forward trends in fashion eye wear for our collection."

He enjoys the work environment at Cedar Rapids Eye Care. When he’s not behind our lenses, he’s behind his camera lens directing movies. Check out the storyline and filmography of his latest comedy, Smoking Gunn, at IMDb.com. Check out his latest filmography at www.jumpstartmovie.com.
 
Diane - Optician, Eye Health Testing, Contact Lens Technician, and Frame Stylist
"I'm proud to be a part of this health-care team that helps people see their world."

Diane has eight years of experience in testing patients for the doctors to evaluate eye health, topography, pressure, nerve fiber, visual fields, and what the patient can and cannot see.

She has worked in different offices and appreciates how our technology has refined the process to eliminate aberrations and manual errors to give a more accurate diagnosis and precise prescription. In her spare time Diane enjoys playing golf badly.
 
Brenda - BS, Biology (University of Northern Iowa)
Who would have thought a part-time high school job would lead to a life-long career? Brenda started working for Cedar Rapids Eye Care when she was seventeen, left to go to college, and returned to work in vision therapy with Dr. Kara Heying in 1998.

She likes the variety in her work from diagnostic testing to working through our catalog of vision therapy exercises.

"No two patients are ever the same -helping them to achieve makes it interesting and very rewarding."

Outside of the Children’s Eye Center, Brenda is busy with her two sons’ basketball games, track meets, tennis meets, and church activities. When time allows, she and her husband enjoy spending time with friends and playing tennis.
 
Maria - BA, Psychology (University of Texas at Austin)
"After seeing our son’s incredible progress through vision therapy, I knew that I had to work in this field. Dr. Kara and Dr. Winter are the best."

Maria loves all of the "A-Ha!" moments her patients discover through vision therapy - seeing a 3-D movie for the first time and really appreciating 3-D, coordinating vision and motion to hit a home run, and learning to love reading and writing.

When not at the office, Maria likes to garden, exercise, travel, and grill out with family and friends. She and her husband, Mike, buzz around town between their children's school, swimming, tennis, cheer, show choir, scouting, music, and church activities.
