  • Heather
    Technician/Insurance and Billing

    I was born and raised in the Ellettsville area and graduated from Edgewood in 1995. I have 2 daughters, one in college and one still attending Edgewood. I have been with Hoosier Family Eyecare since January 2006. I am an optometric technician having attended the Optician program at Indiana University's School of Optometry. My job duties consist of scheduling appointments, to checking patients out, and everything needed in between, including filing your insurance. I keep the contact lens inventory as up to date as possible. Most patients can be fitted with contact lenses the day of their exam. We are always taking new patients!
