I have lived in Colorado for most of my life and graduated from the University of Northern Colorado. I am so excited to be working at Kirk Eye Center! I love working in this field and being able to make a difference in others’ lives. We have a great team here.

We don’t want you to live with the symptoms of Glaucoma and possibly cause even further damage and problems down the road. It’s technically an eye disease in which the optic nerve has been damaged.
