Jay is the optician and very first employee of Six One Six Vision Center. Jay has many years of experience in the optical industry, and is supremely talented at making sure you look and feel great in your glasses.

Kaitlyn, Optometric Technician
Kaitlyn is our Optometric Technician. While fairly new the optical industry, Kaitlyn loves it and is working towards earning her paraoptometric certifications. Kaitlyn has 10+ previous years of customer service and looks forward to the daily interaction with patients, especially kids. She has two rambunctious boys of her own that keep her on the move! Outside of work, she loves to be outdoors; paddle boarding, going on walks and four-wheeling adventures are her favorite summer activities to do with her family. When the weather cools down her favorite thing to do is curl up with a good book and hot cup of coffee.

Lisa has held general administrative positions for many years and has had years of experience in medical/optical patient administration. She is an Idaho native who enjoys camping, hiking, fly fishing, and motorcycling with her husband to the many beautiful destinations Idaho has to offer.
