Catherine started her career as an Optician in 1989 at a private optometric practice in California where she grew up. She enjoyed learning all aspects of the office, from patient welcoming, to technician, to running the lab were they would do their own edging of lenses.

In 1992, she and her husband moved to Montana where she spent some time working in a full scale, nationwide optical laboratory. She feels her experience in both the office and laboratory gives her a well-rounded array of knowledge that helps her as an optician. While in Montana, Catherine became certified with the American Board of Opticianry

Moving to Oregon in 1999, Catherine has since worked as an optician at two other offices in the Portland area, as well as another nationwide full service lab as their final inspector.

Joining the Mt Hood Eye Care team in 2017, she is so excited to be back in a smaller, family oriented office. She looks forward to giving our patients quality eyewear education, so that they can make a well informed decision on their eyewear investment to receive the best vision possible.

Catherine loves to spend time with her husband, of 27 years, and 3 children; excited to soon be adding a daughter-in-law. In her free time, Catherine enjoys cycling, reading and playing the piano for Logan Community Church where her husband is Pastor.

Gretchen

Gretchen has worked in Ophthalmology/Optometry for over 16 years. After she completed her Associates of Science degree at Portland Community College she went on to receive her Certification as an Ophthalmic Technician.

She has continued in the industry providing exceptional attention to patient care. What distinguishes her from others in her field of expertise is that she enjoys building relationships with patients so they will feel part of “our family” here at Mt. Hood Eye Care.
