It’s been my pleasure to work with my husband, brother & sister-in-law & our incredible team at McCormick Vision Source since 2001.
My medical career began in 1981, in Dallas at Baylor University Medical Center. I started as a Medical Technologist, in the Special Diagnostic Clinic of the Ophthalmology Department. My specialty was working directly with patients using cutting edge technology which essentially was unavailable anywhere else in the nation. Not only did I have the distinct pleasure of working with some of the nation’s top surgeons but the privilege of assisting in proctoring surgeons from all over the nation as they attended seminars on medical advancements. I moved to back to Austin in 1987 and since then, I’ve been blessed to continue my medical & management career.
As in the past & now at McCormick Vision Source, I am surrounded by incredible Doctors & cutting-edge technology. I’m so proud to be part of this practice & to work with our Team. Our goal is to provide our patients with the some of the best Doctors & medical technology available. It’s so cool to have generations of patients coming in to see us. We know you have choices & are honored you choose us.
In my spare time, I enjoy raising money for cancer research by creating teams which attend either running, biking or walking events. My favorite is the 10 k and Half Marathon. Otherwise, I can be found cheering for the Longhorns!
Hi, my name is Jamie. I relocated to Texas from California in 2012, and I joined the McCormick Vision Source team as a receptionist in July of 2014, but now hold the role of Front Office Operations Manager. I really enjoy what I do, and it brightens my day to be able to see patients leave the office with a smile on their face.
When not at work, I enjoy being outdoors and exploring all that Austin has to offer.
Hi, my name is Micah. I’ve worked at McCormick Vision Source for just over one year, since 2016. I love working with my coworkers and the Doctors, they all show such a passion for the industry and our patients. I work at the Front Desk, where I pull insurance benefits and check in patients. I really enjoy being able to help our patients in any way possible. It’s really the McCormick way! We are like a big family and that extends to our patients.
When I’m not working your will find me out and about in my home town- Austin! I love going hiking in the greenbelt and trying new restaurants. I love that Austin offers such a unique variety in cuisine. I also enjoy exploring the great state of Texas, going to UT games, and hiking through state parks. “I can’t wait to meet ya’ll!”
McCormick Vision Source welcome our newest staff member and technician, Michael Nelson-Garcia. Michael looks forward to helping our patients and ensuring a positive experience in our office.
I am the official number-cruncher here at McCormick Vision Source. I have the honor of being the longest running employee, having been here since 1996. I am usually up to the challenges presented to me to make the numbers and our software work together. I enjoy being the official private investigator. (I believe I was one in another life 🙂 I know the reason I have been here so long is because I get to work with one of the nicest groups of people you would ever want to meet.
In my off-time, I am an avid hockey fan and really enjoy living close to the Cedar Park Center to watch the Texas Stars play. My husband and I really enjoy our Las Vegas treks and our timeshare in Maui. We try to get there as often as we can, especially since our daughter and grandchildren live in Hawaii.
I began working as an insurance and billing specialist here 10 years ago. I strive hard to get all the information about your insurance benefits ready before you come in for your appointment. I try to file your claims correctly and in a very timely manner. Most days you will find me in a purple-beaded lounge environment otherwise known as our back office. When I’m not at work I enjoy the peaceful country life in Burnet County, spending time with my grandkids, reading, and cross-stitch.
Hello, I’m Jolene, Dr. Mike’s other half. I began working in the eye care business as an Optometric Technician in 1988 working for Mike’s older brother John in Lubbock, Texas. I continued working in eye care while supporting Mike in Optometry school at University of Houston by working as an Ophthalmic Technician at Mann Eye Clinic in Humble, Texas. Since then I have held many jobs from being a stay at home mom to most recently a teacher’s aide for Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities at RRISD. I have come full circle now and am happy to be working with my husband and the team at McCormick Vision Source. I enjoy getting to catch up with many friends from our community who have trusted us for many years with their eye care.
When not at our office I enjoy reading and playing with our German Shepherd Dog, Charlie. I also love to travel to new places and to visit our adult and college aged children.
Hello! I’m Diane. I began working in eye care when I worked with my father in his Optometry practice in Harlingen, Texas. Since then I have worked in several Optical practices throughout Texas. I have worked in Houston with a pediatric Ophthalmologist and several other Optometry practices in Houston. I have taught an optical class in San Antonio at the Rosenberg School of Optometry. Recently I lived in Cary, North Carolina where I held a management position in the optical department at the Durham, VA Hospital. I then moved back to Austin and continued working as an optician at the VA Out Patient Clinic. I enjoyed my work at the VA because I wanted to help giving back to our Veterans.
I have always had a passion for the Optical Field in General, so I attend numerous optical Vision Expos and continuing education. My years of work in the Optical field and accumulation of knowledge has helped me become a skilled optician, and I strive to expand and refine those skills. I love helping patients select the right frame and lenses for their needs. As I look back 43 years later I still enjoy my profession and helping patient’s LOOK and SEE their best.
Hello, my name is Tanisha. I was born and raised in California and moved out to Texas in 2012. I began my career in the Ophthalmology field in 2007, and I received my COA certification in 2011. I have been with the McCormick Vision Source family since September of 2014 as the lead technician and medical assistant. I take great pleasure in helping our patients and meeting new people.
I have three girls, all teenagers! We love exploring, hiking, and going to the lake.
I have been with McCormick Vision Source since June 2016 as an optometric technician. I have always had a passion for helping people. I love working with patients, especially kids. I love to keep everything organized, especially soft contact lens orders and rebate information. I am the “go-to” person when it comes to organizing and office projects. I enjoy working with our Doctors and learning new things every day.
I was born and raised here and I enjoy all that Austin offers. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Biology from Texas State University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
New to Austin, I started at McCormick Vision Source on September of 2015.
I have been in the Optical field for 17 years with experience in managing both Corporate Optical Chains and Private Optometry Practices. Working for a private practice has always been a personal favorite of mine and this office is no exception! My favorite part of this job is building relationships with patients as they come in year after year for their glasses, and a private optometry practice allows me to do so. Purchasing eyewear can be an intimidating task, especially for someone who’s never had glasses before. My goal when working with patients is to make the process as smooth and as easy to understand as possible. You can count on me to give you an honest opinion when frame styling and clear choices when talking about your lens options.
In my spare time, I enjoy being a photographer of children and newborns. Kids are my passion, I really enjoy working with children as an optician and a photographer. I have two daughters of my own who are the loves of my life. They both wear glasses so I can relate to other moms with kids in glasses. Let me tell you, a spare pair for your child is the way to go to ensure being stress free! For fun, I love scouring the Austinot for fun family events, going to car shows with my husband, travelling, and watching movies.
Hi, My name is Lainey and I have worked as an Optician at McCormick Vision Source since 2016. I enjoy my position because something new happens every day. I am always learning and never stagnant as an Optician. I also enjoy working with patients and getting to know them on a personal level.
I moved to Austin from Tyler, Texas. I think Austin has more opportunities and it is a beautiful city to live in. In my free time, I am a full-time online student at the University of Texas at Tyler. I will graduate with a Bachelors in Business Administration in the spring of 2018.
