CHRISTINA LEAVITT, R.D.O.
Christina grew up in Massachusetts, but started her career as an optician in Virginia before moving back to the Northeast 18 years ago. After apprenticing with one of the larger optical chains, and earning her certification and license, Christina realized that boutique optical shops, with their emphasis on quality products and the latest technologies, offered her a better chance to grow as an optician. Christina found the perfect pairing with Envision. She loves the combination of building relationships through great service, performing the highly technical custom work she excels at, and fusing it all together with the fashion side of eyewear.
Christina and her daughter now call Haverhill home, but they love Boston for the Commons and Public Garden, the MFA and MOS. Sully’s and Castle Island in Southie will always hold a special place in their hearts.
