Optometric Tech

Originally from the booming music city of Nashville, Kelly arrived in the PNW almost 7 years ago, fell in love with the area and now considers beautiful Bellingham her home. New to C Fast Optometry, she loves being a part of helping patients in her community see better and her main goal is to make sure it’s a fun experience for everyone.

An amateur photographer with a love for the outdoors, you can usually find her with a camera in hand around town or on the trails. She enjoys hanging out with her furry hiking buddy, River Song (named after a Dr. Who character), spending time with family, reading, listening to music (yes, she does love country), and can’t get enough of British Crime dramas.

Mike Lebeiko
Optometric Tech / Business Manager

Mike is the Swiss Army Knife of our office. Need some graphic design? Got complex insurance questions people can’t answer in-store? Is your computer down, or your left click is now your right click? Yep, Mike is the guy for all that. He may even help you out putting in your contact lenses. Beware though, he makes a bad joke about looking into the blow hole of a whale every time he takes a picture of your eye with the Optos Daytona (wide angle retinal camera). Just laugh and nod.

What our Patients are Saying

“Dr Fast is the most patient, effective Optometrist I have ever seen. I am 58 and have worn glasses since I was 5 years old. Every other doctor has told me “that’s as good as it gets for you”. Meanwhile Dr Fast worked with me until we achieved 2030 vision. She is a talented doctor. ”
