Mr. Jimmie, Practice Manager & Optical Lead
Jimmie has been with the company the longest and provides stability to both the administrative side of the company and our optical department. Prior to his role at The South Eastern Eye Center, he worked with a manufacturing company at the Georgia Shipping Port in management and logistics. He brought that special skill set of organization and leadership to our practice. Onsite, he has learned the art of manufacturing eyewear and helps to manage the day-to-day tasks of our full-service optical center. He truly enjoys assisting patients with the eye wear selection process in to help patients find eye wear appropriate for lifestyle success. Mr. Jimmie, as he is affectionately called, can be seen all over the office assisting the doctor, checking patients in, fixing the water fountain, or even talking shop with a fellow sports fan about his beloved Philadelphia Eagles.
If you have questions about your eyewear, including contacts and sunglasses, ask for Mr. Jimmie by name!
