Patient Experience Coordinator & Vision Tech
Corrie knows every patient wants to feel safe and respected, and to know that they can trust their care team. This is why we pride ourselves on making sure we are knowledgeable and up-to-date, treating all of our patients the way we always want to be treated when we go to the doctor.
“My favorite part of working at Vision Specialists is the environment. Our team cares about each other, which makes it easy (and fun!) to come to work and bring our best every day. I have also loved being able to watch my daughter get her first pair of glasses and walk her through her new normal with extra support!”

Corrie enjoys writing/blogging, watching Food Network with her husband, and finding fun things to do with her two children. The one thing Corrie can’t go without is her morning workouts.
