Meet Our Team in New Holland, Pennsylvania
Connie is passionate about her career in the optical field. She completed an internship in 1994 that developed into a technician role with Dr. Wolfram Andrews, first working with him at another location. She loves her New Holland community and was excited to join the OA family in 2008 as both a technician and insurance claims processor. Since January 2018, Connie has been finding great fulfillment in her role as Practice Administrator. One of the aspects she finds most rewarding is recognizing the strengths of each team member and using those strengths to create the framework needed to provide individualized, 5-star care to each patient. In her free time, she enjoys outdoor activities, curling up with a good book, mentoring, and spending time with her family and dog.
Since joining the OA team in 2020, Becky has served as a technician, front desk associate, patient care coordinator, and most recently office manager. Before starting with Optometric Associates, she worked in various healthcare roles such as a Health Education Specialist and a Hearing Care Practitioner. She is a graduate of Penn State University and holds a B.S. in Health Education from the University of Florida. She takes pride in assisting providers with thorough and individualized five star eye care. When she isn't at the office Becky enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and three kids, participating in Crossfit, and going to country music concerts.

Judy is very happy to be part of the staff at Optometric Associates. She started out as an apprentice optician in 1983 but quickly came to realize that contact lenses, rather than spectacles, were of greater interest. In 1986, she passed the NCLE exam and has maintained the certification not only by attending lectures and classes but also by participating in giving lectures and classes at many industry conferences nationally as well as internationally.
After retiring from Lancaster Contact Lens Inc., she is happy to consult, perform technical duties, and be a friendly face to our patients. It is her desire to pass on the legacy of specialty contact lens care to another generation of practitioners and technicians.
Traveling to Virginia, Maine, and Colorado to visit children and grandchildren, golfing, and getting together with good friends over a meal are what bring happiness at this stage of life. Cooking and sewing rank high also. Judy and her husband are active members of a local church, and faith and family come first in their lives.
