Meet the Team - Lynn Atkinson
Why did you get in to Optics?
I was already working in Prestwick as a Dental Receptionist and enjoyed helping people with their healthcare needs. I felt this was a great opportunity to still help people but in a totally different way.
Where did you study? / What qualifications do you have?
I went to James Hamilton Academy in Kilmarnock and achieved 5 Highers & 8 O’ Grades.
How long have you been with Urquhart Opticians and what do you enjoy most about your job?
I have been with Urquharts now for just under a year. I enjoy meeting different people and helping them pick the perfect frame.
What is your favourite brand of eyewear and why?
There are so many lovely frames to choose from. At the moment I love the Armani collection, and Oakley is my favourite brand for Sunglasses. They are so comfortable to wear.
What is your most memorable patient experience?
I have dealt with a lot of lovely, friendly patients it’s impossible to pick one experience in particular!
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I love socialising with friends & family and walking my little Westie Tino.
Where is your favourite holiday destination?
I’ve only been once but would love to go back to Sorrento in Italy.
What is your favourite movie?
Shawshank Redemption. If it was a Christmas movie then it has to be Elf!
What is your favourite book?
I enjoy reading Stephen King
One interesting fact about yourself?
I got married in Italy...it rained! But apparently it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day!
