Myrtle Grove Optical
Optical Store in Wilmington, NC
I have been in the optical industry for 28 years. I began working in an optical laboratory in 1977 and decided to pursue my career further and enrolled in a four-year apprenticeship that was approved by the NC State Board of Opticians. In 1984, I took my State Board exam and became a licensed Optician in 1985. I was the 1st woman in the Wilmington Laboratory to get my Optician License, paving the way and opening doors for other women in the area to pursue the same career path. In 1989, I received my certification from the Boston Academy of Opticians and passed the National Contact Lens Exam.
