How Our Patient Became One Of Our Leaders

If you’re a patient at our Plymouth practice, you probably know Amanda Fernandes.

She’s our Clinical Manager with a passion for helping people see better.

Amanda Fernandes How our patient became one of our leadersHere’s something you might not know about this loving mother of two beautiful children…

Before she joined our team nearly 13 years ago, she was a patient of Dr. Lynch’s!

“I was sitting in the exam chair and he asked what I did for work. I told him I was a hairdresser but wasn’t sure how long I wanted to do it. He told me I should join his team. One month later, I was hired as a technician,” Amanda said.

Since that day, Amanda has grown into one of our top leaders at BayState Eye Center. We couldn’t be more proud and thankful for her dedication to our team, but more importantly, her commitment and care to you – our patients.

It only takes one conversation with Amanda to realize how big her heart is…

And there are two little people who steal her heart.

It’s her five-year-old daughter and three-year-old son – Laylen & Greyson.

Her 10-year-old chihuahua and dachshund mix, named Chico, also steals some of it 🙂

Here are a few other fun facts about Amanda:

Amanda and both of her children have December birthdays


She loves to read; romance & thrillers are her top choices

It’s family first for Amanda! She and her siblings meet at her parent’s house every Sunday for lunch

She doesn’t like coffee – you’ll have to ask her about that the next time you see her 🙂

So there you have it.

Just another example of how our technology, products, and PEOPLE make a difference when it comes to providing the best eye care in our area.

We hope you enjoyed getting to know more about Amanda and we hope you say hello to her the next time you see her!
