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 interning 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!)
