Optometric Technician

Karen was born Karen Lee in Kansas City, Kansas and raised in her parents hometown of Stilwell Oklahoma and still lives in the Stilwell community of Piney. Here she raised her children, next door to her parents and siblings (what a blissing!). She is married to Willie and has four children seven grandchildren and another on the way. She has many nieces and nephews that she loves as her own.

Karen loves spending time with her family most of all and being outside doing anything. She attends Liberty Baptist Church with a loving close church family.

 She worked for Gates rubber for 23 years, and was thankful to the Lord for that opportunity. In 2017 she attended ITCT to study medical billing/coding and medical terminology then afterward began working with Doctor Vaughan in 2018 and is loving every minute of the job.

Working in the optometry field has been educational and eye opening, Lol 🙂 The time with all the wonderful people that come in the office is so special. And Miss Joyce’s cooking is the best part of the job! Her main position is working as a technician involved in direct patient care.

Patient Relations Specialist

I’ve worked at My Family Eye Care for almost twenty years and love seeing patients we’ve seen for years and others who are knew to our family. Since I am older with a lot of life experiences , I can empathize with problems our senior patients experience. I love encouraging and educating our patients when it’s time for them to switch to progressive lenses, or undergo cataract surgeries, other eye laser procedures , skin cancer treatments or even joint replacement surgeries . Our patients are a wonderful part of our family at MFE. I handle patient correspondences, referrals, copies, records, test reports and our greeting card program. When one of our family is sick, hurting or has lost a loved one, we want them to know we care. I help support and back up the rest of our staff in various other ways. I live just outside of Siloam Springs with one of my grown sons and several dogs and cats. I love to crochet and cook and look for new things to create and bake. I keep busy with my family and local church group.
