His externship was done with the University of Utah Moran Eye Center and the Salt Lake City Veteran’s Hospital.

He is a past president of the Wyoming Optometric Association, and currently serves as co-director of the Northern Rockies Optometric Conference held each July in Jackson, WY.

Dr. Lynda Jones spent her childhood in Vermillion, SD, and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1994 and her Doctor of Optometry degree in 1998 from Pacific University College of Optometry. Her externships were done with Omni Eye Services in Chattanooga, Tennessee and the private office of Dr. Dietz-Pillen in Bellevue, NE. Her first rotation was tertiary care eye disease referral, and her second rotation trained her in general family eye care, especially in children’s vision. Making sure children’s eyes are “ready to learn” began being important to her in school and continued into private practice. Her current interests include nutrition and vision, and she is a member of the Ocular Nutrition Society, a group of eyecare practitioners aimed at optimal health and disease prevention of the body along with the eyes. Dr. Lynda currently serves on the Wyoming Optometric Association Board of Directors. She is married to Dr. Grant Jones and they have three children, Jackson, Mattilyn and Marcus. She is an accomplished musician, avid reader, enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, and would golf more if her schedule allowed.
Leatha was born and raised in Goshen County, graduating from Southeast High School. Her background in cosmetology was a perfect foundation for her role as an optician. She is trained in how to best compliment skin tone and face shape in selecting the best eyewear for the patient. Leatha listens closely to people’s needs and is very detail-oriented. She has enjoyed the technical training she has received in adjusting and repairing frames, and has embraced traveling to state meetings to continue learning outside of the work place. She enjoys photography and spending time with her husband and three children. Leatha has been with us since 2008 and is looking forward to continuing to serve our community in the future.
Kristen was also born and raised in the Torrington area, graduating from THS. Being a full-time college student, gaining a degree in pre-nursing and psychology, and also working full-time here has been no easy task for her. Though an excellent student, she says she struggles to find more interesting work than what she does here at Torrington Vision Source. Kristen has been working for us since she was in middle school, and though our youngest employee, she can be boasted as our most seasoned! With confidence, she was given the job of running the optical at the ripe age of 17. Kristen and her hunky husband, Seth, have a beautiful daughter and a baby boy. She likes spending time with her dogs, Kate, Oakley and Mater, and the other animals on their “funny farm.” Kristen holds the record, by far, for having the most eyewear of all staff! You will rarely see her in the same frame on your visits to the clinic. She loves her glasses, and wants the same for you. Ask for Kristen and she will be happy to spruce up your eyewear.

If three kids weren’t enough, Ashley and Matthew own and care for two dogs, five cats, six horses, chickens, ducks, and cattle! In any remaining spare time she has, Ashley enjoys cooking, quilting, baking, and doing all of the other “mommy” chores the days hold!

After high school she attended Eastern Wyoming College and graduated with her Associates of Science degree, emphasizing social sciences. Since 2012, she has been part of the Torrington Vision Source staff as an optometric technician. During the fall, you can find her cheering on the Nebraska Cornhusker football team. (Do not mention this fact to Dr. Grant.) In the meantime, we are working devoting her to the Wyoming Cowboys! She also enjoys taking her son to all of his sports and school-related events, which keeps her very busy outside of the office.
