"As   Gisele’s   daughter,   Optical   field   was   the   subject   I remember   hearing   about   for   most   of   my   early   years.   Having   worn   glasses   from   an   early   age,   it   was   inevitable   that   I   too   would   end up following in my mother's footsteps and getting involved in this industry" At   16   years,   she   accompanied   her   Mom   during   the   Summer   holidays   to   her   place   of   work,   where   she   received   hands   on experience.   Megan   found   this   to   be   very   interesting   work,   and   decided   then   and   there   that   this   was   what   she   wanted   to   do   for   her future. In   the   Summer   of   2011,   and   with   11   years   of   experience   behind   her,   Megan   was   invited   to   join   her   Mom,   Gisele,   at   her recently acquired business, Impressive Eyewear.
