We asked Dr. Reed about her passion for Optometry:
'Optometry is a medical field with a wide range of practice options. I was interested in practicing medical optometry, teaching, and eventually owning a practice. And I wanted a field that would allow me the flexibility to adjust my schedule in response to family needs. Optometry satisfies all my professional requirements.'
Dr. Reed has been happily married for over 33 years. Their beautiful family includes girl/boy twins, now in college, and a 14 year old daughter who is not far behind. In her spare time, you'll find her running, biking, reading, playing the piano, and enjoying time with her family.
