An Optical Multihyphenate Who Loves Data and Industry Collaboration

And when she needs a break from the hustle she’s got a healthy rowing machine addiction, comfy pants and date with some Angry Birds to blow off some steam.




An Optical Multihyphenate Who Loves Data and Industry Collaboration
Carissa Dunphy
Monroe Vision Clinic, Monroe, WA

ABOC, FNAO, manager, marketer, writer, influencer, Carissa Dunphy is an optical multihyphenate. “I am a logistics and data person and I love analyzing where efficiencies and savings can be improved,” is her response when asked what she loves about managing an optical business. She also loves “collaborating with other industry people,” which likely explains how she’s acquired all the hats she wears. But Carissa is still a mortal, so she too is frustrated by the recent difficulties finding staff. “It is proving to be very difficult to get anyone to apply for a job, let alone find a good person to fill a position.” She thrives on her many projects but when stress rears its ugly head she has an immediate remedy. “I have an indoor rowing machine and it’s turning out to be like a drug addiction for stress and anxiety relief.” A few other things on her unwind list: feeling the sun or seeing a sunset, making pizza from scratch with the family, catching up on Instagram, playing Angry Birds, dogs, and the softest comfiest pants. Amen!
