During her many years as an employee of Almond Blossom Optometry, Carolyn has been a loyal and invaluable Optometric Assistant. She has learned all areas of our office and can ‘switch hats’ whenever and wherever she is needed. Her creative mind and willing heart have been a terrific asset to this practice.


A Fun Place to Work

I have worked for Almond Blossom Optometry for over fifteen years. I am one of a team of five assistants to Dr. Duane Kirk and Dr. Tyler Kirk. Both doctors are a pleasure and honor to work with. Their loyalty and strength are encouraging as an employee and as a person, in general.

As the frame buyer and dispenser, I have fun keeping the office supplied with the latest styles and fashions. Our office maintains a large inventory with around one hundred lines of ophthalmic wear and sunglasses.

I love my job. I get to work personally with the patients and enjoy keeping an ongoing relationship with many of them.

I have lived in Ripon with my family since 1990. We have been lucky to be able to raise our children in the strong Christian environment of Ripon. I have also been blessed with three beautiful daughters, two sons-in-law, and five grandbabies.
