Hello, my name is Brandy. Finding MFEC has truly been such a blessing for me. Starting as the Front Desk Receptionist in 2016, I came in with no former optical experience. Here I am, years later, with so much more knowledge of all things optical and still loving every minute of it. As of September 2020, I have also added Office Manager next to my name. I feel honored to have been given such an opportunity. When I’m not at the office, you can likely find me with my nose in a good book or spending time with my family and three fur babies.


Hi there! My name is Ashley. I was born and raised in northern Indiana. I recently moved to Michigan and joined the MFEC family. I truly love my job as the Optician because I get to help people find eyewear that makes them feel confident and beautiful! In my free time I enjoy photography, board games, and spending time with my family and friends.


Hello lovely patients! My name is Penelope, and I am a Telephone Receptionist, so I’ll likely be speaking with you at some time or another. I also do some things behind the scenes that help your appointment go smoothly! Before working for Dr. Seim, I worked in retail for a big corporation and just didn’t feel fulfilled in my work. I knew I wanted to work somewhere with a more personal touch, where my work would be more appreciated and I’ve definitely found that, here at Mattawan Family Eye Care! When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my two young daughters and husband. I am a military brat so I’ve been fortunate enough to live in 7 different states before settling down here in Michigan. I spent all my summers here in Southwest Michigan growing up, so when it came time for me to decide where I wanted to live permanently, the choice was easy.


Hi, my name is Kaitlyn. I absolutely love working here at MFEC as the optometric technician! I enjoy helping patients day to day and learning more about eye health from Dr. Seim. I was raised in Grand Rapids, but have lived in the Kalamazoo area since 2014. When I’m not working with patients, you can find me at home watching Jeopardy with my two cats or outside playing Ultimate Frisbee.
