Ella Ortiz-Mendoza joined Sonoma Eyeworks in February 2021. She started her optical career in 2010, is certified by the American Board of Opticianry, and is fluent in English and Spanish. On her time off she enjoys spending time with her Chihuahua Odysseus aka “Ody”, her one-eyed cat Garfield and her husband Ricky. They are expecting their first baby girl Aulia, in May 2023. Ella has a passion for keeping up with the latest trends in fashion, which makes her a great frame buyer.
