Jen Belyea – Licensed Optician

Get to know us a little better! This is Jen, one of Viva’s wonderful licensed opticians.

Where did you grow up and what brought you to Regina?

I was born in Toronto, but we moved to Regina shortly after. About 10 years ago, we moved a lot for my husband’s work going from Montreal, Winnipeg, & Sault Saint Marie before coming back here to be closer to family.

What got you into glasses?

I actually have my Masters in Rehabilitation of the Blind and have worked as an Orientation and Mobility Specialist for years. I was looking for a bit of a change and this was in the same industry, helping people in a different way so I did the Optician program.

How many pairs of glasses do you own?

More since I’ve come here, but not as many as Coralie! Probably 5 pairs of glasses and a pair of sunglasses.

When you’re not working, what do you do for fun?

Kids keep us busy, but I’m a bit of movie & TV buff so I love that whenever I have time.

What’s a brand you’re really excited about and why?

I’ll pick 2. L.A. Eyeworks for all their beautiful, bright colours and shapes and Masunaga with their shapes that are a little more mainstream but with really, really high levels of quality.
