Optical Manager

My name is Kaitlyn. I have been with Della Porta Eyecare since March 2021. You will find me at the front desk as well as in the optical. In 2022, I obtained my Paraoptometric Certification. When I’m not at work I enjoy spending my time reading and spending time with family, friends and most importantly my cat Gizmo. I also love to travel, my goal is to visit all 50 states and to go to Europe at least once.


Office Manager

I began optical care office as a file clerk in 1988 while still attending Bristol Eastern High School. This is where I found my interest in eye care. I earned my Certified Paraoptometric Assistant certification through the American Optometric Association. I attend yearly meetings and events to maintain this certification. I joined Della Porta Eyecare from inception as both an eyecare professional and office manager. My time away from the office is spent enjoying quality time with friends and family on many life adventures.
