Nancy Meyerle Celebrates 24 Years at ECS

Meyerle006Apr05_2011Twenty-four years ago, she was a stay-at-home mom looking for a little something more. Little did Nancy Meyerle know that what would start as 2 1/2 days working in Dr. Kirchner’s office would turn into leading the entire communications team for the¬†largest independent optometry practice in Nebraska.

When she first joined the team of 12 employees at Dr. Kirchner’s office, Nancy was responsible for checking patients in, scheduling all appointments and recalling patients over the phone. All scheduling was done out of a big book, which was always challenging when someone couldn’t remember when their next appointment was scheduled.

The practice continued to grow, merging with Dr. Devine’s office and moving to a new location in 1996. Nancy increased her hours, enjoying the thrill of being able to help patients achieve the best eye care possible.

Through the years, technology transitioned from the Big Book of Appointments through five different computer systems, including many conversions and updates. Nancy stayed on top of it all and watched the business grow from two doctors to the current team of 11, with four locations and over 100 employees.

Nancy knows the importance of managing schedules and the ability to juggle everything that needs to get done. When schedules change and appointment times open up, she loves being able to call patients and let them know they can be seen earlier. She knows what a difference that convenience can make in a patient’s life and she is grateful she is able to help in any way.

Nancy is proud of her 24 years at EyeCare Specialties, “I love working for a company that truly cares about its employees and patients, and is well respected throughout the optical industry.”

Congratulations on your milestone, Nancy! Thank you for your dedication and commitment. We appreciate your hard work and look forward to a long future helping the Lincoln community achieve their best possible vision.
