  • Monica McGowan


    I have been an optician for over twenty years and it is truly one of my greatest passions! Originally from New Orleans, I came to the DMV area in 2015. It has been a welcome adventure. Besides educating patients about their eye health and the importance of correctly made prescription glasses, I am a proud and honored grandmother of three. I am an avid and devoted reader and writer. I enjoy learning, traveling, crocheting, volunteering and, especially, cooking! I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
