Meet Our Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly staff who make Vision Source Insight Eyecare the leading provider of vision care products and services in Atlanta.
Rebekah joined the Vision Source Insight Eyecare family in March 2013.
After spending more than 10 years at Vision Source, she has a hard time choosing her favorite part of being office manager. Rebekah enjoys seeing patients year after year, to talk about their family and their lives. She also enjoys the continuous learning that occurs– Rebekah expands her knowledge base of optometry more and more each year. One of Rebekah’s favorite parts of her role is training new team members and teaching them everything she has learned over the years.
Rebekah fell in love with the optometry field accidentally. When she began working at Vision Source in 2013, she was in college studying to be a teacher. Once she started working in optometry, she knew she could never leave; rather, she switched her major to healthcare management, and remains in the field 10 years later! After completing dual enrollment during junior and senior years of high school, Rebekah received her bachelor’s degree in healthcare management in just two years, before receiving her master’s degree in healthcare administration.
In her free time, Rebekah fulfills her passion for travel! She often plans road trips in a self-converted camper van that she and her husband built. Rebekah also loves Universal Studios, in Orlando, Florida, where she has had an annual pass for the last 5 years. She loves to go camping, skiing, and taking several international trips per year. Rebekah loves to scuba dive, particularly in Cozumel, Mexico, and has been on 50+ dives in the short 3 years that her and her husband have had their scuba diving certifications. She has been on 15 cruises, and visited more places in the Caribbean than she can count. When asked her favorite travel adventure thus far, she says hands down, that it was her 2023 trip to Hawaii!
Bonus fact about Rebekah is that she has a big family– 3 sisters (including a twin sister), 2 brothers, and 12 nieces and nephews (some to whom she’s been an aunt to before her birth)!
René joined the Vision Source Insight Eyecare family in July 2022.
With over 7 years of experience in the world of optometry, René’s favorite element of his role is utilizing our state-of-the-art equipment to help patients. He socializes and connects with each of his patients, as he prepares them for their visit with the doctor.
René has successfully achieved 2 certifications– a Certified Paraoptometric certification (CPO) and a National Contact Lens Examiner certification (NCLE). His knowledge further supports his ability to provide quality care to patients and lend a helping hand to each provider!
In his free time, René can be found playing soccer, hitting the gym, and playing video games.
Bonus fact about René is that he speaks English, Spanish, and is currently learning to speak Japanese!
Christine joined the Vision Source Insight Eyecare family in October 2022.
After working years in the service industry, as a bartender/mixologist and bar manager, Christine started her journey into optical in July of 2015. She credits her previous career as a reason why she loves to see people smile and constantly happy. In fact, Christine’s favorite aspect of her role at Vision Source is seeing her patients’ happiness after they receive their glasses! She believes picking out your next pair of glasses should be a fun experience– when it comes to style, Christine really enjoys helping people step out of their normal comfort zones.
Christine is dedicated to continuous learning in the realm of optical. She enjoys attending various trainings with Essilor and Vision Source, to ensure she can provide each patient with the best products and latest lens technologies. Christine provides recommendations that fit patients’ needs, so that they all have a pleasant and memorable experience.
In her free time, Christine is the best animal mom! She has two pets: a cat named Stormi and a sweet, goofy, three-year-old Goldendoodle named Thor. Christine spends a lot of time with her big baby Thor when she is not in the office– Thor measures up to his name, at a whopping 72 pounds! She walks the trails with him and enjoys exploring all the dog-friendly establishments that Atlanta has to offer. When Christine is not loving on her fur babies, she is enjoying dancing, traveling, and watching anything that is spooky or supernatural!
Bonus fact about Christine is that she is originally from the Boston area, but she has lived all over– including North Carolina, where she moved from to Atlanta in October 2022, for new opportunities and the great foodie scene!
