It's nice to see you. Meet our EyeJoy staff.
Before living in Austin, Laura used to reside in Miami, FL. In her down time she works on hand embroidered commissions, finding new hiking spots with her chihuahua/schiperkee mix Stella, and frequenting Alamo Drafthouse. Her favorite aspect of the optical industry is discovering different personalities through unique, independent frames!
Kaycie has made Austin her home with her fiance and their dog named Disney, after living in Hilo, Hawaii. When she's not meeting new faces at EyeJoy, she enjoys going on hikes with her family at Zilker or the Greenbelt. She favors anything Japanese as far as food is concerned and will never turn down an opportunity to watch Finding Dory.
After growing up in Chicago and finishing up college in Indiana, Kari made her way down to the Lonestar state. When she’s not managing EyeJoy, you can find her climbing at Austin Bouldering Project, spending time surrounded by nature or studying for school. Kari’s favorite aspect of the industry is the functionality behind glasses - not only are they a fashion accessory, they help people *see*!
Kayla moved to Austin in 2011 to study at UT and hasn’t left since! When she’s not assisting patients and ensuring all of our ordering is going smoothly, you’ll most likely find her experimenting with new recipes for a dessert or an elaborate dinner. When she’s not taste testing her newest creations, she can be found in a park with her dogs, Cooper and Goose.
Hong has lived in Austin longer than all the other EyeJoy staff combined. He met Dr. Park when they were undergrads at UT, and they've been inseparable for over 18 years. When he's not filing insurance and finalizing your optical orders, Dr. Park keeps him busy with a laundry list of to-do's. He's a proud dad to 4-year-old Blake and 1-year-old Dylan.
