Kim Thompson

| Office Manager & Optometric Assistant​

Kim is the office manager and is also married to Dr. Dave Thompson! Before she delve into optical she was in school to become an ECE for the developmental handicapped to help others with special needs. Over time she continued with her work in the office and her previous education allowed her to use those skills in the clinic! Along the way she received her optical education and started laying the foundation for the Dr. Thompson team in Nanaimo.

Sarah Bowman

Sarah was a patient at this office as a child and became a part of the team in 2012! She loves helping patients in any way she can and is remembered for her friendly personality. If you are thinking about becoming a contact lens wearer, it will likely be Sarah that teaches you. Since photography is her other passion she is able add portraiture and web design to her optician duties!

Melissa Starling

|​ Optician

Melissa joined our family only a year after Sarah, in 2013. She showed interest in optical early on and hit the books to become a licensed Optician soon afterwords! She goes out of her way to assist patients and her positive 

demeanour is contagious. You may notice she isn't currently in the office. Since she has 3 children she is needed at home due to COVID19 and Canada needing to close schools. Once this is resolved she will be back with her office family!
