MEET THE TEAM

 

A sense of family and belonging are so important to us at Jo Padmore Eyewear.

Your experience here will be of a small, friendly, and highly capable team.

This dedicated team is as committed to delivering excellent eye care, exceptional customer service, and beautifully crafted eyewear as Jo is herself. We have integrity and patience; you’ll never be pushed and you’ll never be rushed.

Jo Padmore

The one with the megawatt smile…

The boss and lead optician, Jo Padmore. Her warmth is evident as soon as you meet her and the quiet confidence of her experience assures you you’re in safe hands. She’ll put you at ease and help the most nervous of patients to relax. She’s the heart of our practice, an excellent clinician, and if chinwagging was an Olympic sport…

Mark Scott

The one with the midas touch…

Our practice manager Mark Scott brings with him a wealth of optical experience. Like an old friend he’ll make you feel instantly at ease and his style consultations are the talk of the town. An accomplished purveyor of eyewear, he will help you pick out that perfect frame that complements your style and makes you feel like your best self. He runs our practice like a well-oiled machine, making sure your experience with us is second to none.

JANE WHEATLEY

The one with the charm…

Charm itself, Jane Wheatley will greet you with the warm welcome of a seasoned client service professional. With many years’ experience in client facing roles, nothing is too much trouble, and she absolutely nails that balance between professional and friendly. And she doesn’t half make us giggle.  

ANDREA JONES

The one with the calm…

Our resident ‘Mum’ with the friendliest manner and a sprinkling of OCD when it comes to organisation, Andrea Jones brings with her a wealth of experience working alongside opticians and ophthalmologists for over 25 years. She keeps us all in check and ship shape. Don’t stand around too long, she’ll probably try to file you!

JYOTI PAUL

The one with the brains…

Optometrist and consummate professional, Jyoti Paul’s experience and expertise will give you the confidence that your eye test will be accurate and expertly carried out. Her optical career started at the age of 16 and she still lectures at Manchester University to this day. A long-standing team member, Jyoti is well known to our clients who trust her implicitly

PAUL MANTON

The one who can Moonwalk…

As tall as the trees, optometrist Paul Manton is a stickler for detail when it comes to all things clinical and the health of your eyes. Jo’s university buddy and clinical mentor for over 30 years, he’s a total perfectionist and brings a calm professionalism to the practice. And that creaking you can hear will be his back or his knees…

NICOLETTE MARSDEN

The one with the camper van…

Another local gem, optometrist Nicolette Marsden is the latest addition to our optical family. Like a breath of fresh air, Nicolette has fitted in beautifully and brings yet more clinical experience, warmth and charm to the Practice. She has great style and wears her glasses very well. When she’s not testing eyes, she’s frequently found wild camping over hill and dale.
