In addition to working at Illumineyes Vision Care part time, Ana is also a full time student focusing her studies in Dental Hygiene. She is versatile in many aspects of the office, including reception and patient testing and joins Dr. Samuel and Neftalia as part of our multilingual staff speaking both Portuguese and Spanish.

Brendan is an ABO certified optician and registered speaker. He has worked for over 25 years in optical labs, dispensaries, and offices. Brendan believes opticians affect every aspect of their patients lives, from the moment they put on a pair of glasses in the morning to start the day, to the moment they take them off to sleep. Brendan’s utmost focus has always been compassion for patients and customers, and their desire to see their world clearly in order to enjoy their lives. Brendan enjoys reading, spending time with his family walking trails in the Monadnock region, and geeking over glasses!
Haley is an ABO certified Optician who completed her training here in our office. Haley has quickly mastered all the latest technologies in our office, including glaucoma and macular degeneration testing. Fairly new to the optometric world, she is eager to learn and especially likes to absorb all of the strange fun facts about the human eye. She loves being able to help patients find the perfect eyewear for their lifestyle. When she is not at work, Haley enjoys going to car shows and volunteering at an animal shelter.
Julie is an experienced technician who has proven to be a great new addition to our office. Julie grew upon a wheat farm in Canada and has been living in the US for 18 years. When she is not working, Julie enjoys going to live music shows and spending time with her two children. Julie is passionate about making patients feel comfortable and cared for, and enjoys meeting and getting to know our patients every day.
Justine is our most seasoned staff member and has been with our office since we opened the doors to our existing building in 2010. Justine is adept in all aspects of the office; her versatility and multitasking skills are integral to our team. You will see her one day sorting out insurance claims, the next day she will be helping you find your favorite pair of glasses or teaching you how to remove your contacts. When she is not at work, Justine loves to spend time with her three children and enjoys cooking for her friends and family. She is a big sports fan and loves watching the Bruins and the Pats (Go Pats!). When she is not watching sports in the summer, Justine likes to teach her kids how to fish.
Although a New England native, Kristin actually started her optical career living in California where she trained in fitting both contact lenses and glasses, and learned what an important role fashion plays in this industry. She completed her optical education in Massachusetts in 1994 where she earned her ABO certification and became a licensed dispensing optician. Kristin enjoys being a part of your entire eye wear experience and has truly found a home at Illumineyes Vision Care, where establishing excellent patient relationships is at the core of our culture. When she is not at work, she loves spending time with her son and husband cooking, bird-watching, watching movies, and tending to her beautiful summer garden. She also loves music and is usually the first on the dance floor or the karaoke bar.
Neftalia joined our office in the Summer of 2019. She is the enthusiastic smiling face that will greet you at the front desk when you walk in the door. Neftalia enjoys spending the majority of her free time with her daughter. When she’s not in mom mode, she enjoys dancing, trying out new restaurants, and spending time with friends. She joined the field in search of learning something new and exploring the great world of Optometry. In the future, she is hoping to graduate from college with a degree related to medicine.
