We are blessed to have some of the finest, friendliest, and caring staff members to be found. They love taking care of people, and it shows!


Carissa is our Office Supervisor at Jackman Optometry. She began her career working at a “big box” optometry facility, joining Dr. Jackman’s in 2012.

She trains our staff and oversees many office functions to keep things running smoothly. Carissa also enjoys working closely with patients. She enjoys quickly maneuvering patients through the test stations, giving them digestible little bits of information that make their visits more informative.

Carissa is a people person who likes to put patients at ease, particularly those who have strong fears of medical care. It’s not unusual for them to leave saying, “Wow, this was actually fun!”

When people come in with longstanding problems that have stumped the professionals, Carissa assures them it’s Dr. Jackman’s mission to work together until they get it right.

In her off hours, Carissa loves spending time with her family. She loves music and has to have it on all the time, especially those golden 70’s and 80’s tunes.

Carissa believes in listening carefully to patients to find out how to best help them with all their vision and eye health concerns.


Nidia is an Optometric Assistant at Jackman Optometry. She performs pretesting, trains new contact lens wearers, and helps people find frames they will love. She also helps out with many other office tasks.

Nidia chose to work in eye care because she likes meeting new people. She enjoys connecting with patients and making sure they have a good experience. Nidia’s first language was Spanish. We are so fortunate to have her here to translate for our Spanish-speaking patients.

When Nidia is not working, she enjoys traveling and exploring new places. She loves spending time with her family and her pets—a dog and a cat!
