When you visit Dr. Rosenak’s Optical Options, you are likely to run into Angie. From patient care to finance, Angie loves being able to jump in and help in different areas of the office.

Angie is ABO certified and is proud of 13 years experience in optical. She considers communication to be the most important part of her job, and knows that honest conversation is what builds trust and a good working relationship with a patient. When Angie isn’t talking with patients at Dr. Rosenak’s, she loves to spend time with her family and get in a little crafting time!
