Liz Hardy-Sauer
Board Certified Optician

Liz has built a successful career as a board-certified optician by consistently employing a vast knowledge and wide array of skills within the optical industry. 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.

Cheryl Moranville
Board Certified Optician

A Florida Licensed, Board Certified Optician for over 35 years, Cheryl Moranville has worked extensively in retail optical settings. While experience in both independent shops and big box optical stores, Cheryl prefers working in a smaller, independent shop because it offers opportunities to better serve the patient’s needs. Cheryl is experienced at helping customers select the ideal eyeglass frame to fit their personality and best lens to enhance their vision. 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. She also enjoys visiting the Disney theme parks in Orlando at every opportunity.
