Meet Emily

Emily Waters is the retail director and has worked with Specsavers for 15 years. Apart from four years when Emily managed the Bridgwater store, she has lived in Barnstaple all her life. She is married with two children who are aged 4 and 2.

Emily came to Specsavers after studying biology, English and computer science at college. She started as an optical assistant and then completed a three year diploma to become a dispensing optician. She progressed from store supervisor to store manager and is now retail director of the store.

Emily enjoys her role as director of the store with her favourite part of the job being the vast variety of the work, with no two days the same. She loves being part of the Barnstaple team and providing the best care and advice she can to customers.

In her spare time Emily enjoys spending time with her children. She has a passion for horses and used to compete on a national level - a hobby she one day hopes to return to. She also enjoys cycling.
