Karen Mooney – Receptionist
For many Karen will be the first member of our team you will meet as you walk through the door or call to make an appointment. Karen has lived in Bridge of Allan all her life and has two boys at local schools. She joined us in 2008 and has enjoyed getting to know our patients and making sure they access the services they need. Karen loves helping patients choose frames that suit them perfectly and often “goes that extra mile” to track down the ideal product to suit.
Outwith work you will find Karen and her family watching or playing at Stirling County Rugby Club or on the golf course.
