Originally from Western NY, she is a graduate of SUNY Oneonta (’11) with a bachelor’s degree in Childhood Education and Literacy.

She is often described by her patients as: soft-spoken, kind-spirited, very knowledgable, and has genuine heart. She truly cares about her patients and their success with vision therapy. She has attended many trainings to enhance her education to ensure that her patients reach their maximum potential.

Kaitlyn wears many hats at the office and is always willing to help out in other departments. You will often see her helping out in the front office. Kaitlyn is very versatile and always willing to give a hand. Not only does she help out at the front, but she also helps with marketing.

What makes Kaitlyn so incredibly special at being a vision therapist? Kaitlyn gives so much of herself to others, she works hard to ensure that her patients are reaching their goals, and never gives up. She has passion for helping others, natural leadership abilities, and a heart of gold.
