Liz Hardy-Sauer

This has earned her a loyal following at Hillmoor Optical. Licensed in five states, she has served as a corporate trainer and a regional manager for two large optical companies, but prefers the personal contact offered through a smaller, specialized optical store. The ability to sit with a customer individually, share her knowledge and truly meet their optical needs brings Liz great satisfaction and personal pride in knowing that she has helped make a positive difference in their life. This philosophy has earned her a high level of trust and loyal customers that keep coming back to see her.

Her primary goal remains customer satisfaction, and this has earned her a loyal following of happy customers. Her interests outside of work include spending time with her family and her two dogs.
