Dispensing optician Nikko Turner recently took up her new role as store manager at Specsavers in Chesham.
A new opportunity
28-year-old Nikko began her journey with Specsavers six years ago and was later offered the opportunity to study a degree in Opthalmic Dispensing by store director Heena Thaker, who recognised her potential and sponsored her study.
Nikko said: ‘I was thrilled to have the opportunity to study in such an exciting field. When I look back, It’s amazing to see how far I’ve come to be now taking up the position of store manager in Chesham.’
For the love of the job
Nikko added: ‘I enjoy the daily challenges of dispensing to a high standard, and for me, there is nothing better than seeing a customer leave happy with their new glasses. I also appreciate working with such a supportive and friendly team.’
Outside the testing room
Nikko, who lives in Buckinghamshire, spent her childhood between Bromley and Lancashire, and went on to study marine environmental science at Portsmouth University. In her spare time, she is also a keen baker.
