Julie Sowany

Ophthalmic Technician

Ophthalmic technician for now, future optometrist

Becoming an optometrist has been Julie’s career goal since she was in middle school. Julie began her optometry journey at age 15 by shadowing Dr. E. and watching her perform eye exams. After sitting in on the first eye exam, Julie knew that optometry was the right career.

 

Currently, she is enrolled in the Bachelor of Science program at the University of Manitoba. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree, Julie hopes to attend optometry school. During semester breaks, she works at Eyeris Eyecare as an ophthalmic technician while learning many valuable skills in the eyecare field. Julie is extremely grateful to have Dr. E. and the other ladies at Eyeris Eyecare as role models and mentors. She cannot wait to "see" what the future holds!

When Julie is not working or studying, she can be found outdoors, baking or learning new languages.
