Administration

Bree, Patient Administrator

Bree is a single mother to a very smart and energetic little boy. She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, reading, coloring, puzzles, going to baseball games (go Detroit Tigers!), and other sports. 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT MY JOB:

I get to build a relationship with the parents and listen to all the challenges and celebrate the successes their child goes through.

Cheri, Bookkeeper

Cheri has the privilege of being the doctor's wife! She is the mother of four adult sons and grandmother of ten. She was an RN for 33 years, specializing in the neonatal intensive care unit. Her hobbies include reading, doing counted cross-stitch, playing piano, and flower gardening. She also enjoys traveling with her husband. 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT MY JOB:

Bookkeeping is a nice change of pace from nursing. It enables me to share in the business with Dr. Myers and to observe how he makes a difference in the lives of so many people.

Sarah, School Liaison/Vision Therapist

Sarah retired from Southwest Allen County Schools in 2009 after teaching Fine Arts for 28 years. Sarah raised three children in Roanoke, in a house built in 1855 and painstakingly restored!

FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A VISION THERAPIST:

Helping children discover, explore, and achieve their potential. I especially enjoy the one-on-one contact with my patients as we work through challenges and celebrate victories TOGETHER!

FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A VISION THERAPIST:

The look on a patient's face when they realize they've mastered a skill that they've worked hard to master. I consider it a privilege to assist patients with their therapy and help them to accomplish their goals.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A VISION THERAPIST:

FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A VISION THERAPIST:

Seeing a patient develop self-confidence and realize that they aren't "less than" their peers. I love it when they no longer say "I can't" but proclaim "I can!"

FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A VISION THERAPIST:

Working with a person one-on-one and helping them to make a difference in their lives. It is the most rewarding when a patient starts to see the changes in their vision. I am blessed to be able to be a part of changing how a person sees and helping them reach their potential.
