Rachel Rossabi, ABOC
Rachel Rossabi would live in a world where water fountains spurt whipped cream and all clothing was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier and made of glitter. She is a sparkling moonbeam and Greensboro townie who has fostered a deep love for eyewear since she donned her first spectacles at the tender age of five, finally seeing that there was writing on the chalkboard and leaves on the trees. She delights in thinking outside the box, and derives immense pleasure from (gently) pulling you out of your comfort zone. Think funky! Think fun! Think lime green or maybe magenta! Rachel is deep in the throes of studying to become an optician, though her deepest aspiration is to finally be crowned Harry Potter knowledge champion of the universe, representing Slytherin house.
- Greatest Loves: Captain and Zoe (the queen snugglecats of the known world), pizza.
- Greatest Fears: Never getting to eat at Jiro’s sushi restaurant in Japan, that Joss Whedon will make another hit series and get cancelled again, being seen in unfashionable glasses.
- Special Talents: Maneuvering tiny screws, filing insurance.
- Needs improvement: Hey, who doesn’t?
Liz Wall, ABOC
Liz sort of stumbled into Opticianry, though it makes sense she’d end up in some type of medical field eventually, always having been fascinated by human anatomy and all its quirks. She loves having the opportunity to connect with patients on a personal level and help make a difference in how they feel about themselves. In her free time, she enjoys crafting, doing special effects makeup, and hanging out with her cat, Spooky. Cryptozoology, horror movies, tourist traps and medical oddities are some of her favorite things. Though she looks forward to beginning the Opticianry licensure program soon, her true goal is to become one of those weirdly specific niche experts they call in for Discovery Channel shows.
