Specsavers in Milngavie is building on its reputation as a strong family business by welcoming the daughter of directors Charles and Caroline Kinsey to the team.

Sarah Kinsey, 22, recently graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with a BSc Honours in Optometry – and is now working in the store as a pre-registration optometrist.

Family business

It seems eye expertise runs in the family - Caroline’s father Dr John Williamson is a retired ophthalmologist and brother Dr Tom Williamson is a retinal surgeon, now based in London.

Sarah started working in the store just after she graduated and now has a full time role at Specsavers Milngavie. 

Sarah said: ‘I’m really enjoying my work in the store and having increased responsibility.

‘I’ve had great feedback from customers on how I’m adding to the family business.’

Following in our footsteps

Caroline said: ‘It’s fantastic to have Sarah here and she’s doing a great job.

‘Our customers love that we’re a family business. It’s a small community and we get to know all our customers very well, so it’s important for them that we deliver continuity.

‘Customers love the fact that Sarah is following in our footsteps.’
