She worked at Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon, IL as a CNA and a scribe before joining the Advanced Vision Care team in September of 2016.

Marietta loves working with patients and helping them achieve their best vision. When asked, “Why do you like your job?”, her response was, “I love the moments that change the patient’s life. The moment they never thought would happen or could be possible. For instance, when a patient who has been dependent on glasses for reading tries on a pair of multi-focal contacts and is able to see their phone without searching for their glasses first.”
Marietta has many responsibilities in our office. She is a scribe for the doctors, does pre-testing, supplement education and much more. She does contact lens education and assists in teaching how to insert and remove contacts. Marietta also answers phones, schedules appointments, and updates patient records.
Outside of the office, Marietta spends time reading and enjoying the outdoors with her husband and her son. She enjoys four-wheelers, hiking, and playing outside with her family.
