As a pre-tester at Brookside Optometric Group, Marie conducts pretest procedures on patients before they meet with their optometrist as part of a comprehensive eye exam. She also helps opticians dispense new glasses, and makes adjustments and repairs to ensure that every patient has comfortable, clear vision.
Her favorite aspect of the job is interacting with patients and assisting Brookside doctors as they evaluate patient eye health and vision quality. She loves to help patients find new glasses that they are excited about wearing, and she enjoys working for a great group of doctors who go above and beyond for their patients and their employees.
Marie is currently a senior at California State University, Stanislaus, and is set to receive her bachelor’s degree in psychology this fall. After graduation, she plans to apply to the Master’s program to pursue a graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Prior to joining the Brookside family, Marie worked for Joy Dawson, a Marriage & Family Therapist in Stockton.
Marie and her husband of 23 years have four children, and their first granddaughter, Chloe, was born in August. Away from the office, Marie enjoys spending time with her family. Their favorite activities include hiking, swimming, biking, and family picnics, and they also love to worship together at West Coast World Outreach Church.
