Oregon Husband and Wife Duo Find Joy By Deciding to Slow Down

Their new formula? See fewer patients, spend more time with them and enjoy the occasional dinner out.




Oregon Husband and Wife Duo Find Joy By Deciding to Slow Down

This February — the month dedicated to love — we highlight a husband and wife team, who after seeing 40 plus patients a day for 20 years, found love again … the love of optometry. They opened Artisan in 2014 to see fewer patients and spend more time with them. They enjoy watching something they built from scratch thrive, being involved in the optical, and being able to have genuine relationships with their patients. In comparison to their old lives, stressful days are rare, but on those days they get out late, “We’ll go out for a nice dinner,” shares Michael. “We’re lucky to have quite a few really good restaurants in Ashland.”
