Jenell Spino, LDO
I’ve been a Licensed Optician in Ohio since 1999. As an Ohio Licensed Optician I discovered that my passion in the industry is in the education arena. I feel that in order to be a great optician we must have a solid understanding of what we practice. I have worked in private practice, the low vision arena and retail stores. What I love about my career as an optician is the patient relationships that come along with the role and the flexibility it allows to spend time with my family.
