Eyeglass Whisperer


Randene Tolhurst

After stumbling into the optical field as a cashier in 1989, Randi has progressed in what has been a rewarding career. She has been a full time optician since completing the 2 year NAIT program in 1994.

She spent 17 years with a large corporation, and during that time was fortunate to be chosen as the only Canadian on a 2 week Gift of Sight mission to Laos in 2002. In 2005 it was time for a change and when Andrea sent her an email wanting to know if she knew of any opticians looking for a position, she saw the opportunity and has never looked back.

In her off time, Randi is a docent at the Royal B.C museum and was recognised for 10 years of service in 2017. Randi and her husband Chris are also active in the arts community by being enthusiastic season subscribers and supporters of Dance Victoria.

It’s very special to be part of this wonderful community.
