First Insight Welcomes New Learning and Development Manager

Why is continual learning and development critical to the success of your eye care practice? Visualize learning and development as investing in your most important business assets—your employees. It’s about improving abilities, knowledge base, skills, work ethic, and motivating your employees to handle unexpected situations better.

For nearly 26 years, First Insight has helped thousands of optometrists and ophthalmologists improve their practice and the patient-provider experience. We make your goals a priority by delivering top-notch onboarding, ongoing training, unmatched customer support, and opportunities to connect and collaborate with peers.

We’re able to do this because we hire and retain the best and the brightest—experts familiar with the eye care industry and staff committed to learning and development. That’s why we’re excited to introduce Kristin Gebhart as First Insight’s new Learning and Development Manager.
