Vicki

Bookkeeper

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.

Jolene McCormick

Administration

My name is Jolene, and I am the wife of Dr. Michael McCormick. I began working in the eye care business as an Optometric Technician in 1988 for Mike’s older brother John in Lubbock, Texas. When Mike was accepted into U of H School of Optometry in 1989, I supported him by working as a Certified Ophthalmic Technician at Mann Eye Clinic in Humble, Texas. Since his graduation in 1993 I have held a variety of 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.

I enjoy finding new hiking trails near Austin and our current residence in Georgetown. I also enjoy serving and worshipping with my church family, traveling, gardening, reading, and visiting our adult children and grandchild.

Julia

Optician, Optical Manager, ABO Certified

Originally from DFW, I started at McCormick Vision Source in September of 2015.

 

I have been in the Optical field since 1998 and ABO Certified.  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 kids and families.  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.

Ashley

Technician

My name is Ashley, and I grew up in Austin!  I joined the McCormick Vision Source team in 2021.  Although I have not previously worked in eye care, I am here to gain experience in the field of Optometry.  Currently I am studying for the entrance exam to be accepted into Optometry School.  I enjoy working with patients from all walks of life, especially the little ones.   

 

I love Austin’s hidden trails, parks, and hiking!  I like to run, listen to worship music, and read books.

Caitlyn

Optician

I am from Long Island New York. I have been working in the Optical field since 2016. I completed the New York State Optician program in 2019. I am Licensed in the state of New York as an Ophthalmic Dispenser, as well as ABO and NCLE certified. I started at McCormick Vision Source in March of 2021 and enjoy meeting each one of our patients. The most rewarding part of the job must be when someone puts on a pair of glasses for the first time and has the "I CAN SEE" moment. It makes me realize how large of an impact we make on people's lives.

I have been in Austin since 2020. I have always visited Texas growing up and had a lifelong love of the wide-open spaces. I love the up-and-coming prospect of Austin, and all it has to offer. What I love most about Austin is TACOS!!! Breakfast Tacos, Lunch Tacos, Dinner Tacos, Dessert Tacos!!!!
