Lori Treadwell, owner/operator of a family owned wholesale optical laboratory for over 38 years. Knowledgeable in all aspects of running the business; able to work with and mentor many different employee personalities while focusing on production schedules and quality issues. In 2011, I sold the business and am now Chair of COLA (California Optical Laboratories Association) which is a non-profit organization which donates time and money to schools and other charities. I have been involved in all aspects of the wholesale optical business: production supervisor, purchasing, accounting, data entry, customer service, all lab work, and anything else that needed to be done including janitorial. In that time I developed strong personal relationships with my customers, I feel that in small business, this is the key to success.
