Myla Myers – Practice Manager
Myla started at the clinic in 2001, after getting her associate’s degree in English. As practice manager, she bills insurances, makes appointments and occasionally fills in for the opticians. In short, she does a little bit of everything.
What she enjoys most about her job is the people she works with; she also enjoys the community of patients at the clinic too. Rooted in a small community, the team here ends up serving a lot of the same families over the generations: parents, then children, now their children in turn. Being able to get to know patients in a meaningful way, remember them and reconnect with them when they come in for care – that’s what sets the clinic apart, in Myla’s view.
Random fact about Myla? She’s an avid reader, devouring five or six books a week. Whenever she’s not busy with something else, chances are, she’s reading.
In college, Bonnie majored in nursing. She was hired at the clinic in 2007, where she runs the front desk and keeps everything working smoothly: from setting up the machines first thing in the morning, to routing calls through the day. She schedules patients, collects their insurance information and sends out reminder cards when their next appointment is due.
The team at the clinic is great. They work well together; Bonnie is proud of that. She’s also proud of the care they provide patients, the way they value the people who walk in the door and really make an effort to make them happy. In fact, what she enjoys most about her work is the patients themselves – they’re wonderful.
Random fact about Bonnie? She oil-paints. She also creates stained glass: cutting it, assembling the mosaic with lead and glazing the final product.
