For These Married Partners Unwinding Comes by Way of Netflix and Whiskey

Each of them are happy working with their “best friend”.




Dr. Katie and Scot McElvaineSpringfield Family Vision, Springfield, MO

The couple that works and plays together stays … sane. Prior to opening Springfield Family Vision Dr. Katie McElvaine and her husband, Scot, worked opposite schedules and barely got to see each other. Now one of their favorite things about running their business is “working with our best friend. Now we get to spend some time together every day.” When Dr. Katie is “playing optometrist,” she says, Scot is “playing optician/manager.” Despite the joy they find in building their business together, it isn’t without it’s challenges. Dr. Katie says prior authorizations on medications make her “batty.” And Scot’s head wants to explode anytime shoppers are afraid to try anything other than the exact frame style and color they’ve had. Luckily, they know how to unwind together with a little streaming TV and a glass of whiskey … or two.
