Stacy Jacukowicz

Hello!  My name is Stacy. I was born in Germany and raised in Pennsylvania. Prior to my optometric career, I was a retail manager for Bon-Ton for several years prior to its closing in 2014. Not only do I have a degree from McCann School of Business and Technology with a certification in medical billing and coding, but I am also well versed in all aspects of our optometric practice.

I am the “go-to” person in our office for everything from check-in, insurances, glasses, contacts, pre-screening, performing OCTs and Visual Fields, as well as scribing for the doctor. I am a proud member of the Pennsylvania Paraoptometric Association. I love helping our patients picking out glasses, checking them in, and getting everything ready for our doctors.

In my personal time, I enjoy being a wife and love being a Mom to an amazing son Connor. I enjoy reading, crafting, and spending time outdoors.


Nicole Morgan MSOT

Hi, my name is Nicole Morgan. I started at Schoonover Eye Care P.C. in 2016 and have continued to work part-time throughout my college career. I graduated from the University of Scranton with a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy. I definitely love being in healthcare and helping others. Working at Schoonover Eye Care has strengthened my knowledge of insurances, medical procedures, and diagnosis codes needed in all medical professions.

The best part of my job is helping and working with patients of all ages and diverse backgrounds, whether it is an eye diagnosis or physical diagnosis, I listen to the needs of each and every patient with kindness and understanding.

I enjoy working with all our doctors and learn new things on a daily basis.


Catherine Pusateri

Hi, my name is Catherine. I started working at Schoonover Eye Care as an intern in January 2019. I am a graduate of Abington Heights High School. Currently, I am a full-time student at the University of Scranton and am studying Exercise Science. I aspire to become an optometrist and will begin my studies in 2021.

I believe in giving back to my community and volunteer for many organizations and events. I have several responsibilities at Schoonover Eye Care but some of my favorite tasks include pretesting, medical scribing, but most of all talking to our patients. I have learned how to perform visual fields, OCTs, icare tonometry, and taking full medical and ocular histories. I am grateful to have the opportunity to have Dr. Schoonover as a mentor and to learn from my fellow colleagues. I have fallen in love with the dynamic environment of optometry and enjoy learning and interacting with our patients.

I have a close relationship with my family and we are all in the healthcare field. My parents are Pharmacists. I am the middle child and have an older sister in medical school and younger brother studying physical therapy. During my free time I enjoy going to my family’s lake house and spending time with my friends and family.


Taralyn Reilly

I have been working part-time at Schoonover Eye Care since March of 2018, and it has been a wonderful learning experience. I perform a variety of tasks, including scanning important information into the patients record, filing paperwork so the office can run smoothly, answering the phones, and checking in glasses and contact lens orders. I have also been trained to pre-test patients and capture optical images of the retina.

Currently, I attend Valley View High School. I participate in Leo Club, Bio Club, National Honors Society and Student Council. I also actively play on the Girls Tennis team every fall season. Outside of school and work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and often volunteer at events in the community.


Julie Kelly

Hello! I am definitely a people person and love taking care of and getting to know all of our patients. I truly care about making our patients have the best experience in our office and exceeding their expectations. I worked in the optical field many years ago with Dr. Schoonover. I left the field for a few years to become a mom to my wonderful daughter Tressa. While being a stay at home mom, I worked in the IT field where I honed my skills at problem-solving and troubleshooting issues. I have found these skills paramount in returning to the optical field when my beautiful daughter started school. Currently, I am studying to be a certified paraoptometric in Pennsylvania and look forward to serving our patients even more with my new knowledge. I was a dog breeder and have shown them at the Westminster Dog Show. In my free time, I enjoy reading and listening to podcasts.
