Our exceptional, friendly staff is our greatest asset. They are excited about what they do and they care personally about getting the best results for our patients.
Our receptionists will try to accommodate your busy schedule by finding appointments that suit your needs.
Cheri is our Optical Associate in our Orange Beach office and she is a sunny and warm member of our team. That's why she fosters excellent relationships with all of her patients. Cheri has a love for helping people and takes great satisfaction in personalizing lens designs for each patient she meets. When Cheri is not helping patients, she is exploring beautiful coastal Alabama on her bicycle, setting her crab trap, and chasing sunsets.
Suzy Penton is our Licensed Dispensing Optician and our office greatly values her 31 years of optical experience. She has been licensed since 1991 so it is safe to say Suzy knows her job. Even better, Suzy loves her job because it proves to be an interesting combination of many fields like Medical, Customer Service, Technology, Sales and even Fashion. Best of all it truly helps her make a difference in people’s lives. Suzy smiles when she says “There is nothing more rewarding than helping improve someone’s vision!” When Suzy isn’t helping our patients see better and look great in their new glasses, she is probably outdoors. She loves watching sports and is a big fan of the Blue Wahoos, FSU Seminoles and her favorite Jacksonville Jaguars.
Heather, our Optical Associate, has been an enthusiastic part of the team since 2017. She has been working in the optical business since 2007! She brings a decade’s worth of experience to the office and has a passion for designing lenses that give patients their best vision. When she’s not being a “nerd” (as she calls herself) over lens enhancements, Heather is spending time with her children. She loves taking them to the beach. She is an expert, not only in optical, but in homemade spaghetti sauce as well.
Moira has been working at Coastal Family Eyecare since the summer Dr. Leonard opened her first location. She works as a receptionist and optical assistant and handles billing. When not caring directly for patients, she is often in the lab, cutting glasses. Outside of the office, Moira teaches yoga and enjoys tending to her plants.
Jordan is our knowledgeable Technician and scribe. She works closely with patients during their exam performing special testing, coordinating referrals, and handling prescriptions. Jordan takes a diligent focus on the needs of each patient she works with. She has a degree in Forest Resources and Conservation and enjoys spending times outdoors with her friends and family.
