I have been providing eye care since 1996 and I really enjoy the wide range of patients in private practice. From examining small children to mature adults, every patient presents a unique and personal challenge. I take pleasure in getting to know patients so I can better serve and understand their needs.
I grew up in Holmen, Wisconsin, and completed my undergraduate degree from Concordia College in St. Paul. I am a Nationally board-certified and residency-trained optometrist and have worked extensively in comprehensive eye care and surgical environments since graduating from Pacific University College of Optometry in Oregon. I was honored to be named the Young Optometrist of the Year by the Minnesota Optometric Association. I was also honored to receive the Holmen Alumni Award.
My husband Dirk and I met at optometry school and have always dreamed of owning our own clinic in a rural community. Although Rogers is still growing leaps and bounds, we enjoy the small-town atmosphere and the support and friendliness of its people. We enjoy spending time with our two boys, kayaking on the lake, and eating fresh eggs and honey from our chickens and bees!
We look forward to providing your family with comprehensive eye care for years to come!Some fun facts about me:
- I am a bookaholic…please share your favorite book with me at your exam!
- I enjoy gardening and landscaping.
- I enjoy traveling, wine tasting and eating at great restaurants so any suggestions of your local or national favorites are welcome!
