Jessica Tarka


Jessica was born and raised in Calgary and attending high school in the Netherlands, where she lived for 5 years. After graduating, she attended McGill University in Montreal and earned her Bachelor degree in Chemistry.

She had an interest in Optometry as a career and started shadowing some Optometrists in Calgary and Vancouver; it went well and she went on to complete all her pre-Optometry courses and is now gaining valuable experience working full-time at MPOC.

Jessica enjoys chatting with patients at the front desk, helping them with inquiries and contact lens orders, and performing pre-test procedures on patients before they see the Optometrist.

In her free time, she loves to travel and has been very fortunate to have visited 35 countries to date. When she’s at home she enjoys scrapbooking as well as attending concerts and music events around town.
