Wendy's Last Day

Amanda Rungis - Saturday, February 10, 2018
Today we sadly said farewell to Wendy. She joined Sure Eye Care (then Sure Optical at Lisarow) in May 2010. This makes Wendy my longest serving employee.

How it all began

I met Wendy at friend’s 40th. She was struggling to find paid employment as she had been raising her children for the last two decades. So in a traditional recruitment sense she had no experience or references. I did what all management coaches and books tell you NOT TO DO - hired someone simply on intuition and a desire to help.

Shining Star

From the very first day it was clear that Wendy was great with patients. She had a talent for knowing what made individuals unique and about the best way to serve each person. She is a very caring and empathic lady.

Gaining Qualifications

Wanting to improve her skills, in 2015 Wendy gained her Optical Dispenser qualifications. Wendy was inspiring to watch that year. She worked full time and attended TAFE in Sydney one day a week. All while balancing her love and commitment for family and friends.

At graduation Wendy gave the Thank You speech on behalf of all 2015 graduates. Someone very respected in the industry said to me - “I have been going to these for a long time. That was the best Thank You speech I have ever heard!” Why? Because Wendy spoke from the heart about how passionate she was about helping patients.

Craving New Challenges

Wendy has always demonstrated a desire to increase her knowledge. So it is very exciting that she has been offered a position with a larger independent optometry practice David Hendry EyeQ Optometrists in Berowra Heights. I have known and respected David since 1993 when we did a post graduate course together at UNSW. I am sure he will be an amazing mentor.

I shall miss seeing Wendy’s beautiful smiling face at Sure Eye Care. Not only has she been a wonderful employee, she has been a great friend.

The Exciting News

As with all things in life there is balance. So as we say sadly say goodbye to Wendy, we happily look forward to introducing our newest team member Mel next week.
