On the first Friday of every month, join us to hear the savvy, successful business owners + entrepreneurs of Des Moines share their story. In a laid-back environment, you’ll catch some words of wisdom from women + men who have been through it before—and maybe walk away with a new connection (or two).
Sessions are completely free and open to the public, and are held from 11:30am to 1:00pm, with networking from 11:30am to noon. This First Friday will be held at The Iowa Center 8345 University Blvd, Suite F Clive, 50325. Seating is first come, first served. Lunch is not provided, though we encourage you to bring your own if you'd like.
Chris is a native of Des Moines, growing up in the Highland Park neighborhood. Over the last 30 years, Chris has worked in optical boutiques and private practices where she has honed her skills to created a superior level of service and product knowledge. After 20+ years in management and training she went back to her service-based roots to work directly with clients – this is where she fell in love with being an optician all over again.
Chris opened Total Eyewear Gallery in November 2018 because she saw the need for individualized attention. She gets to know people, their lifestyle, and their needs so she can help them create their own unique eyewear style. Her gallery provides a fun non-clinical approach that inspires creativity while providing quality eyewear on any budget.
She believes your eyewear is a true reflection of your identity and your personality which is why her motto is “We help you, do YOU.”
Please join us to hear this amazing women business owner, active community member, and friend to many, share her entrepreneurial story!
