Sherry has worked side-by-side with Dr. Wardell for the past five years. She was instrumental in planning and setting up their family practice. Sherry is our Office Manager and also an Optician. She is great at helping patients pick out glasses that fit correctly and look great. 

Before starting Wardell Vision Center, Sherry worked as the office manager for a dental practice here in Billings where her specialty was insurance and billing.
