Every member of a team is an important player in the success of the organization and while she isn't involved with recruiting new students, or seeing patients in the clinic you likely know her from all the photos, posters, and displays art work for the College of Optometry. 

Janice White is the graphic designer for the College of Optometry and is responsible for most of the  professional posters, mailings, and communications that help enhance the image of the college.

From the EyeWire the the class photos...Janice is responsible.  Janice is also using her creative insight to assist students in the design of posters for presentations and contests.

Lorraine Simeone, Administrative Manager for the College of Optometry recognizes Janice's work within the college,  "Janice  has been involved with every creative design, every professional poster, every announcement/invitation for all College events, all marketing brochures and packets for Student Services, the University Eye Center and satellite locations and recently the professionally designed wall art that is now located on the third floor near Student Services and in the University Eye Center.
