Employee Spotlight July 2018

Introducing Nicole Oakley CPO. She joined our team with the intent to be a tech from the beginning, but started out working at the front desk. She moved into her role as a tech at the end of last summer, and has become CPO certified. She’s a valuable, well-rounded asset and support to our office team. We asked her some questions so you could get to know her a little better.

How has Gillette Optometric Clinic helped you in your career development?

Working at Gillette Optometric has helped me with my confidence. It’s shown me that I only get better by trying and everyone at the clinic wants to see me succeed!

Do you have an office nickname? How did you earn it?

I don’t know about an office nickname, but I a m certainly am known for messing with people. I leave funny messages, hide things, occasionally put wet wipes in unsuspecting co-workers’ pockets. It’s all about having fun and lightening the mood around the office.

What is your motto or personal mantra?

I would say “what goes around comes around” is a motto I use and truly believe. I honestly think that if you’re a good person, and do good things, it will come back to you eventually. Even if you don’t notice it every time.

What is your favorite part of working for Gillette Optometric Clinic?

I love my co-workers, but I think my favorite part about working at Gillette Optometric is learning new things all of the time. The doctors give us incredible resources to better ourselves and further our knowledge about the optometric world ALL THE TIME!
