Jannel is new to our office, joining us as an optician in May 2023. She is a health & wellness coach and has lost over 70 lbs during her journey! Jannel starts her days by working out at 5am and joining a personal development call at 7am, ensuring she starts her day off powerfully. Jannel also enjoys reading, listening to music, crocheting in the winter time (she’s made her own throw pillows!) Jannel has one son (Javon) and four pets: a dog (Ryu), a cat (Luna), a gecko (Po) and a half-moon betta (Jade). Jannel’s favorite quote is “Speak what you seek until you see what you said.

Welcome Desk
Kait has been with our office since 2021, but had been helping patients for quite some time prior to joining us. When she’s not busy keeping our office moving efficiently, Kait enjoys winning money from scratch-offs, spending time with her family, including her dog, Rufus. Kait also likes to attend concerts, usually country music, and being outdoors with her friends and family. If you’re down the shore, you just might run into her, as she loves the beach!
