She studied at Southeastern Louisiana University where she earned a Master's of Business Administration. Her previous experience working in the financial industry has brought a great work ethic to our team. "The eye care industry is quite interesting and ever changing! We have the best patients who make you feel like family. I attribute it on the culture of Southern Louisiana. The doctors that I work for are most attentive to their patients needs and really care about people. The girls that work here are some of the kindest and most caring people that you could meet. They make my job quite pleasurable."

Jeri-Anne Griffin (Technician)
Jeri-Anne, a native of Vacherie and resident of Thibodaux, joined our staff July 2011 as our front desk receptionist. For her first year with us, she smiled and greeted all patients that walked through our doors. Her life took an exciting turn in 2012 when she got married, but we were sad to hear that a move would be taking her away from our office. We were happily surprised, however, when not even a year later Jeri came back and re-joined our staff as a technician. "Leaving this job in 2012 made me realize just how much I enjoy it here. The staff, the patients, and the doctors are amazing. I'm so happy to be back!" says Jeri.
Joelene Himel (Technician)
In January 2014, we were excited with the addition of Dr. Lisa Mitchell to our office. In June that same year, we welcomed Joelene. She comes to us with extensive ophthalmic experience. Joelene worked at Kellum Eye Center in Houma from 2006-2013. Her previous experience working alongside Dr. Lisa has allowed her to transition easily to our team. Joelene was borned and raised in Labadieville, LA. She currently resides in Labadieville with her husband and three children. We are excited to have Joelene on our team.

My job is to help patients thoroughly understand their benefits based on their medical and vision needs" says Christine Broussard, who has been with Mitchell Family Eye Care since 2011. Christine, originally from Gueydan, LA, has extensive billing and insurance experience in the medical field. We are proud to have her on our team.
