Why Kristal came back to Specsavers Canada as an optician

Back in 2006, Kristal Evans backpacked through Europe and South America. During her stop in the UK, this Canadian started what she thought would just be a job as a sales associate in the town of Rugby, England. She instead stayed with her Specsavers family for three years and during this time she would complete the Specsavers Pathway program to become an optical dispenser. Fast forward to 2021 to when Specsavers crossed the Atlantic to Canada, Kristal, now a mother of two, saw this as her opportunity to join the first Specsavers retail team in her home of Nanaimo.
