Meet the Staff

  • Judy Nguyen

    Judy's wide breadth of experience in the optical industry spans over 11 years.  She has been working with Dr. Takeda for over 7 years now and currently manages both Lakewood Optometry and Pacific Eye Care.  What she loves most about her job is being able to interact with patients on a daily basis and establishing long-term relationships with them.  She derives a great deal of satisfaction in helping each person look and see their best!  Providing excellent customer care is her primary goal. Judy is fluent in both English and Vietnamese.  

    When she isn't working, Auntie Judy loves spending time with her nieces and nephews, all 8 of them!

  • Gladys Lopez

    Gladys joins our office with 6 years of optical experience. What she enjoys the most about being an optician is frame styling and selecting the best lens options for patients.  She strives to do her very best to make sure all of her patients' needs are met.

    When not working, she spends her free time with her fiance looking for new food adventures and exploring nature. They enjoy taking road trips to national parks or heading out to the local beaches.

  • Clint Wales

    Clint has been with Dr. Takeda at Lakewood Optometry since March of 2021. Prior to that, he worked as an Optometric Technician for over 7 years in his hometown of Juneau, Alaska. Clint moved to California from Alaska to escape the rain, and continue his education in hopes of one day becoming an Optometrist himself. Having a passion for working with people has helped Clint build long lasting professional relationships with patients, and provide the highest quality of care.

    In his spare time, Clint enjoys gaming, spending time with his dog, skiing, going to the beach, and taking in all that beautiful southern California weather has to offer!'

  • Sandra Alanis

    Sandra has been working in the Optometry field for over 15 years now. She found love for the industry right after high school and continued her career.  She has had tasks and responsibilities that focus on helping patients with their eye care needs from front office to optician. What she loves most is giving patients excellent customer service and interacting with them. She also has experience in the optical laboratory field from surfacing to edging lenses. Throughout the years her experience has helped develop skills into a managing position.  

    When she isn't working Sandra finds herself traveling the world and spending time with her family and English Bulldog Chata who she loves dearly!
