Johanna Velasquez

Johanna's interest started young, since she has always worn glasses. She always found it interesting that there are so many different lenses in the phoropter and that switching the dials a certain way would correct my blurred vision.

She's been working in optometry for over half a year. She previously worked in customer service.

She grew up in Bowie, MD.

Outside of work, Johanna likes visiting the city, especially at night because she likes the skyline lights. And spending time with her friends and family. She describes her family as fun, loyal, and loving.
