Cheryl, Practice Manager
Cheryl began her career in business management in 1988 in both the insurance and health fields. She believes every patient should have a holistic and wonderful experience when tending to something as important as his/her vision. “I love the challenge of assisting in coming up with ideas on how to make each patient visit unique and tailored to their individuality.” Cheryl’s hobbies include oil painting, writing, and reading. With eight children and four grandchildren, it is amazing she finds the time!
Jenni, Coordinator of Patient Care
Jenni has been greeting our patients with her welcoming personality and humor for over 15 years! The enthusiasm she exudes with patients comes from her close family ties and the joy of spending time with her nephews and nieces. We’re lucky she chose the often rainy Willamette Valley over Hawaii, where she was born. Still aspiring to travel, her next destination of choice is Ireland. The warmth and energy she provides at Foley Vision Center continues to grow with new innovative ideas, inspiring not only our patients, but her co-workers as well.
Tina, Billing Administrator
Tina has been a cornerstone of Foley Vision Center for over 26 years, and in the field of optometry for 30. Her experience has garnered her a great deal of respect amongst Foley Vision Center’s patients. The warmth and kindness she feels for the patients is highlighted in the hard work she provides every day. When she isn’t giving her all at the office, she finds happiness in reading, playing with her cats, and participating in a good crawfish boil. She often brings her homemade sweets to the office for co-workers who are very appreciative! While happy in the emerald valley, she also very much relishes the salty breeze of the Oregon coast.

When she isn’t in the office she’s taking in the beautiful Oregon scenery through the eye of a true photographer. Her kindness extends to those in the community who are living with disabilities.
Stevie has been a part of Foley Vision Center for almost ten years. She is a driving force in so many corners of the practice, from finding patients the perfect fit to putting in that extra bit of effort to make sure we are providing the patients with the best options for their eye care.

When not in the office you will find Stevie at home enjoying her husband’s home-cooked meals and precious time spent with her three children and two grandchildren.

She is very active in sports, volleyball in particular, and hopes to one day travel to the Iguazu Falls in Brazil.

She is an avid hiker, camper, and beachcomber and enjoys going on road trips with her dogs, Luna and Cooper. Marina hopes to road trip through every state one day and has been to 13/50 so far!

In her free time, she enjoys gardening, boating, and going on adventures with her dog, Lady. When asked what her #1 tip is for skincare and aesthetics, she said sunscreen. “Your medical aesthetic treatments are pointless if you’re not protecting your skin from the sun every single day! The sun triggers 80% of skin aging!”
Amanda, Ophthalmic Testing Analyst
Amanda is the newest technician at Foley Vision Center, and she loves the eyecare industry so much that she will be going to school next year to be an optometrist!

Her favorite thing about eyes are the OPTOS photos because they are unique to each individual.

She hopes to one day see the Pyramids of Giza and swim with whale sharks.

She hopes to one day travel the world and dispense glasses to people who are less fortunate that can’t receive them.
