Meet our Staff

Benita Templeton

Benita Templeton has been a loyal EyeCare Partners employee for over 24 years. She began her career in optical in 1976 working with Dr. Overman right here in Pella. In 1989 she joined the staff at ECP and over the years has become ECP’s certified “Queen of Adjustments”…our longtime patients often ask for her by name when needing to adjust to a new pair of glasses. She currently assists us two days per week in our lab with the ordering of glasses, safety glasses, adjustments, and in general; making sure the ship is shape.

Benita and her husband Keith reside in Monroe, but eagerly await their yearly snow bird excursion visiting Bushnell Florida. She is an avid cross-stitcher ; a “disease” which impels her to favor creating numerous Santa Claus projects, she has quite a lovely collection. Thank goodness she has connections to keep her vision sharp for her hobby—she has one of the most fashionable collections of reading glasses you can find anywhere! In her spare time, she also enjoys listening to Bluegrass music.
