Christy is re-joining our staff at Superior Vision Therapy in April 2016 after working a year in another health care office. She originally started with us in October 2012 after retiring from Marquette General Health System where she was an anatomical pathology technician. She has received training from the Optometric Extension Program for Vision Therapy. She has training in administering Visual Fields and the Visual Evoked Potential (VEP).
Christy was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and worked as a trained medical assistant there before moving to the area in 1980 to work for MGH. Previously, Christy volunteered at the Leaning Tower YMCA teaching autistic children gymnastics. Her and her husband, Rick, also provided respite foster care to a family of foster children. Christy enjoys working with children and found the area of vision therapy to be fascinating.
In her spare time, Christy enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing, biking, and gardening. She is also an avid reader. Christy lives in the Marquette area with her husband, Rick, and has three grown daughters.
