Theia Vision Care, 213 E. Capitol Drive, Hartland, was recently presented with the Golden Hammer Award by the Hartland Chamber of Commerce in recognition of exemplary property improvements. The Chamber believes that these improvements positively and directly affect commerce in Hartland and enhance the community as a whole. The intent of the Golden Hammer Award is to further encourage property owners and businesses to invest in improvements which ultimately make Hartland a better place to work and live.

Dr. Koeck of Theia Vision Care dreamed of creating a comfortable and welcoming practice that feels like home. She has created just that with her unique location in the heart of Hartland. The sunny, yellow farmhouse with the large, wrap-around porch feels like you are visiting a friend rather than a clinic. At Theia Vision Care, Dr. Koeck puts the focus back where it belongs – on her patients. Theia Vision Care offers comfy armchairs, toys and homey décor, while also bringing you the latest eye care and technology. With an eye for fashion (see what we did there), Dr. Koeck offers her patients a beautiful selection of glasses and sunglasses to help you see and look your best. “I’ve always felt that eyeglasses are the first thing that people see and the first impression you make. The right eye glasses can do more to help you look your best than makeup and even jewelry. Why not wear something that enhances your personality and highlights who you are?” Koeck explained.

Pictured is Dr. Anna Koeck of Theia Vision Care. Voted the Number 1 eye doctor in Lake Country, Dr. Koeck brings over 12 years of clinical care experience to The Vision Care, named after the Greek Goddess of sight and beauty. Visit www.theiavisioncare.com for more information.

This is what Mike Gogin – State Farm has to say….

I started as a State Farm Agent in 2010, opening our Hartland office on Merton Avenue with my wife Tamara. Tamara works in our office along with our two awesome team members to help service our customers. We take pride in being there for our clients, offering in-person meetings to review what is most important to them. Also, we find many people don’t understand the world of insurance or like to think about it until they need it. So, we take the time to explain what coverage they have, and what coverage they may want to consider adding to make sure they are properly covered.

Hartland has been a great place to own and operate a business. Currently I am an Ambassador for the Hartland Chamber, and was also a Chamber Board of Director for 7 years. Both positions have been great to not only serve and represent the Chamber, but also get to meet a lot of amazing members of the Hartland and Lake Country area business community. Each year Tamara and I try to help out at various Chamber functions, including the Hartland Street Dance, Lake Country Community Fest, and the Holiday Train.

On the personal side, Tamara and I have 3 kids that for sure keep us busy; Braden (19), Brock (17), and our daughter Flynn (13). All are or have been involved in youth sports, and we have enjoyed watching and coaching our kids along the way.

Together we enjoy hiking and golfing in the summer, and when the snow flies, we all enjoy skiing together with the occasional ski trip out West.
