Ann

Ann has been in the Oxford Area for 45 years, but you’d never guess it from her English accent! This is Ann’s first job in the eye care industry and she has been eager to learn all that she can. She has come to realize that an eye exam is so much more than seeing 20/20 and is amazed how a person’s health is related to their eyes and vision. When not busy working, Ann enjoys traveling, gardening, reading, working with clay, and spending time with her husband, Jim, and family – especially their grandchildren.
