Gabrielle McCarthy, her husband, and two children
Gabrielle comes to our office from Saint Clair, Missouri, a tiny town about 30 miles from Wildwood. She brings with her a positive and cheerful demeanor every day and has a genuine love for what she does. She is constantly seeking more opportunities to learn and grow the knowledge she currently has in eye care and is always willing to go above and beyond for patients.
Gabrielle worked in another optical office for roughly one year, and while she found that optometry was the kind of work she was passionate about, the patient experience wasn’t what she was looking for. She came to Rockwood Eyecare because she wanted to be somewhere that she could make a genuine difference for all patients she encounters. She now shows up to work happy to help and educate each patient on the lenses and frame options that work best for them and fit both their lifestyle and budget.
Outside of the workplace, Gabrielle loves spending quality time with her husband, Matthew, and chasing around their two children. Having just had her son in September of 2021 and her daughter in September of 2020, she spends most of her freetime chasing her two under two. When it’s possible to slip away from her fast paced home and work life, she loves hiking, learning new recipes, and catching Marvel premieres on the weekends with her husband.
