Meet Our Newest Pre-Optometry Intern at Urban Optiques: Ellie Rose

One of the things that excites me the most about owning Urban Optiques is our Pre-Optometry Internship Program.

At any given time, you’ll typically find 1-3 smart, highly-talented (and always energetic) pre-optometry students Ellie: Urban Optiques Summer Pre-Optometry Interninterning at Urban Optiques.  As someone who was able to experience an internship myself earlier in my career, I know how invaluable it can be to get some real-world, hands-on experience working within a bustling practice BEFORE you enter the optometry doctoral program.

So I’m thrilled to introduce and welcome our latest Pre-Optometry Intern at Urban Optiques, Ellie Rose.

Ellie joins our existing rockstar Intern Claire Steensma who has been with us since January. Claire will be doing some traveling this summer as well as switching around some of her hours, so we’re thrilled to have Ellie jump in and help cover, as well as bring her own delightful personality, energy and intelligence to the practice.

So a little bit more about Ellie:

Ellie is currently a Junior at the University of Michigan (which as a Spartan, I will not hold against her) and is doing her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience.  She’s extremely active in the Alpha Phi Omega (Gamm Pi Chapter) service fraternity at U of M (so you know she has a heart);  loves photography and art; music and planning parties and events (good skills to have around Urban Optiques!)

She’s enjoys running and tennis, is training for her first 5K at the end of this summer and her favorite book is Original Dustjacket for F. Scott Fitzgerald's “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Ellie’s favorite sunglasses are Ray-Ban Wayfarers, but we hear she already has her eye on a pair of the Special Edition Badgley Mischka Perry aviators with 24K gold yellow lenses.  So obviously the girl has great taste too!

Ellie has been working on the team now for a couple of weeks, and like all of our fabulous Interns so far, she’s jumped in from day-one to help out with nearly every aspect of Urban Optiques.  One day you might find her helping with pre-exam work-ups, another day shadowing me in the exam room, and yet another day working the front desk or helping people pick out eyewear.  Right now, one of her big projects is to get the wooden Urban Optiques street sign fixed (I said you’ll do a little bit of everything during your Internship at Urban Optiques.)

Like Claire, Ellie has a truly delightful personality, is wicked smart and just takes things and runs with them.  What more could you ask for?

So when you stop into Urban Optiques, make sure you say “hi” to Ellie when you see her.  We’re positive you’ll love her.
