Patti has worked in the optical industry since 2004. She has been employed in both Optometry and Ophthalmology practices which have provided her the opportunity to master her skills in solving a wide variety of visual conditions and patient needs.
Patti has experience curating and buying frames and has even worked for a major optical lab where she gained unique technical insight into the lens making process.
Patti’s favorite thing to do is finding that “perfect” pair of glasses for her patient. Over her years of working one-on-one with the entire spectrum of optical wearers, she has learned one crucial truth – the right pair of glasses can add or subtract ten years from a face. She has spent her career “subtracting.”
Outside of Urban Optiks, Patti can be found in her art studio where she paints, sculpts, sews, creates 3D renderings & prints, and even does woodworking. She also enjoys visits to Balboa Park and Liberty Station with her husband and two dogs – Zeppelin and Domo.
