Marlys Speers

Marlys Speers has been working in the Oskaloosa office for 20 years. Many of our patients have been lucky to have Marlys assist them with picking out glasses over the years, she knows most every patient by name! She has a great eye for style, and enjoys knowing that the patients she helps feel great wearing their new eyewear. Marlys also helps in the office by answering phones, making appointments, assisting the doctor, adjusting and repairing glasses, training patients on contact lens care and methods, and placing lab orders in addition to her role as a frame stylist. She loves working with Dr. Else, and all of her fantastic co-workers, and says her work at ECP never gets boring.

She has been married to her husband Slade for 24 years, they live in Monroe and they have 2 boys. Dalton is 18 and off to college, while Sheldon who is 14 keeps the family tradition alive by staying very active with sports activities (Go PCM!). Marlys loves attending the boys’ games and activities, and spending time with her friends and family. She looks forward to special “shopping trips” with the girls from work and if she’s lucky, they may grab dinner at her favorite restaurant Texas Roadhouse. Her favorite TV show right now is “Say YES to the Dress”, and her favorite movie is “The Blind Side”.
