Born and raised in Oregon, Rickey’s heart lies in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. His family came from Guam, so his roots proudly branch out to the deepest waters of the Pacific; this has attributed towards his love of seafood, sunny skies, grilling and reggae!
Rickey’s love for optics began in 2013; as he was always fascinated by his sister’s tales of working in the optical industry. At the crossroads of both healthcare and fashion, a spark was ignited to harness his creativity in pursuit of helping others. Within his first year of becoming an optician, Rickey was designated a Certified Optician by The American Board of Opticianry. Since then, he has continued to maintain up to date knowledge to provide the best service and care to all of his patients.
Outside of work, Rickey enjoys exploring the outdoors; from hiking and camping, to fishing or grilling, any excuse to be outside is a good one!
