Rhonda Nienburg

Owner / Optician

In 1980, Rhonda started her optical career at Pioneer Optics where she met her best friend Kim and her partner Dacia who also worked at Pioneer. She met many people there - they all became lifelong friends. After leaving Pioneer in 1988 she moved on to Boise, Idaho, where she learned the retail part of making glasses. She settled on working for Pearle Vision in 1989 and it ended up being a great experience as she learned from a gentleman who knew everything about eyeglasses - and then some. So many people along the way had taught her everything about eyeglasses that she thought she could learn, by 2003 she moved to Campbell California - working for Pearle vision. It was fun doing some training and learning that end of it. In 2005 she was offered a different job by Pearle Vision. Fixing a store in Cedar Rapids, Iowa that was going downhill. There was no fixing that, the Dr of 20 years was leaving. So, she left with her and worked as her Lab Optician. She learned some valuable lessons - leaving Iowa in 2007. She worked for an unnamed HMO for a while (and didn’t like it) and started looking around for something else – coming across Hendrix & McGuire Optical. THIS was the place she was going to buy. It wasn’t going to be like the big box stores she worked for - those places were turning the Opticians world into selling without knowledge. It wasn’t going to be about how much money you give her; it was going to be like it was when Earl Hendrix owned the place. By October 2008 Rhonda was the proud owner of Hendrix McGuire Optical. She decided to run her store with her own vision - where the CUSTOMER is number one. She has strived to make it a destination for people - where it’s always fun and we always laugh. She has turned it into an optical store that is trusted for knowledge/expertise - fun to go to, and is home to Portland’s Perfect Peepers.
