“Dr. Plug is fantastic and very good with children. Everyone is very friendly and I love my new glasses and sunglasses! I’ve always despised eyewear shopping but Carolin made it fun” f/b march 2015
Janet is our office manager, and can often be found at the front desk or in pretesting if she’s not completing administrative duties. Janet started at Eye Care Nanaimo in 2017, after working at a busy optometry practice in Kelowna, where she also became a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant. She moved back to Nanaimo in Septeber 2016, after spending 4.5 years in Kelowna. Before making the move to Kelowna, she worked in a chiropractic practice. In her spare time, she spends time with her hubby and kids. Most of her free time is spent at the hockey rink or other sports venues.
Marilyn joined the Eye Care Nanaimo team in November, 2015. She divides her time here between the prestesting department and the front desk. She relocated to the island in 2013 to enjoy a four season lifestyle (we don’t think she misses the Red Deer winters much!). Marilyn and her husband have three grown children and a dog. In her downtime, she enjoys hiking, walking, cycling, kayaking, sewing, painting and reading.
Joanne has been with Dr. Geneau since he opened his first office in Nanaimo, which is 19 years ago! She’s our contact lens and office administration specialist. Joanne is the friendly voice on the other end of the telephone that many of our patients recognize every time they call. She is a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant. When she’s not working, Joanne enjoys gardening and spending time with family. She has been a Tupperware consultant for the last four years.
Danielle has been at our office for as long back as most of us can remember. In fact, she started accompanying her dad, Dr. Geneau, to the office starting at the tender age of 8. At that time, she was great at cleaning frames and tidying the office. Her position grew, as she did, and she’s now our proud office manager. Danielle is currently working part-time, as her full-time job is raising her three beautiful daughters. She enjoys spending time with her girls, as well as hiking, biking and gardening.
June joined Eye Care Nanaimo in 2009 and brought with her many years of experience in administrative and office work. Our June-of-All-Trades never stays in one place for long; she’s often found at the reception desk, gathering pre-test data for the doctors, or assisting patients with their glasses; though she is most often the friendly face you see at the front desk when entering the office. June is a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant. When she’s not at work, she’s active outdoors. June can often be found hiking, running, going to a gym or out on the water in a dragon boat or kayak.
Candice joined our practice in the summer of 2014. She is currently working part-time, while completing her Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant training and raising two wonderful children. Candice’s smiling face is often found at our reception desk or assisting with pre-testing, though she may also be spotted using her sense of fashion to find our patients just the right pair of glasses!
Andy started with Eye Care Nanaimo in early 2015 and carried with him a wealth of knowledge in agriculture and insurance. He relocated to Nanaimo with his wife and 2 daughters to enjoy the island lifestyle and we’re happy to have him! Andy is quickly learning how much there is to learn about eyes. He is usually found in our frame gallery, ready to assist you with finding the perfect frame to match your lifestyle and prescription! He is our sunglass connoisseur, and manages our contact lens sales.
