Angel Taylor

Office Manager / ABOC Optician / Optical Laboratory Technician

Angel is new to the state of Montana, coming to us all the way from Daytona Beach, Florida. Having an expansive eight-year background in Optical, she has worked all aspects of front desk, opticianry and some insurance billing, but most of all, laboratory work. As our lab technician, she will be providing you with quick, high-quality glasses that will keep you coming back. Her vast knowledge, meticulousness and perfectionism show in everything that she does.

She graduated with high honors and 3 specializations with her Psychology A.A. in 2011, then graduated magna cum laude with her Psychology B.S. in 2015. She is a certified Guardian ad Litem, as well as a lifelong avid volunteer for various causes involving people and animals. She spent this past summer volunteering in Thailand and Laos teaching English and building much-needed infrastructures out of all-natural and recycled materials. She is well-traveled and loves to see new places. In her spare time, she can be found hiking, exploring and trying new things. We are pleased she has joined our team and know she is going to be a valuable asset to our company, not only for us but for our patients and their glasses as well.

Sarah Shorley

Front Desk Assistant

Sarah was born and raised right here in Helena, MT. She graduated from Capital High School in 2010 then went off to college at The University of Montana for a few years. She began feeling a bit homesick so she chose to come back to Helena in order to be closer to her family. While in college, she met her best friend, Chris, and they are now newly married. They currently share their lives with two adorable fur babies that always keep life interesting. Sarah’s passions include going on adventures, camping, and kayaking the river. Her abundance of positivity and her friendly nature are a wonderful addition to our Elkhorn Family. She is happy to assist our patients with their front desk needs, whether it be selecting frames, fitting frames, or making repairs; just to name a few. She is eagerly learning the optical side of our business and is interested in pursuing an ABOC Certification.
