Margaret earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Colorado State University in Pueblo, Colorado. After working in the high tech industry, she decided to re-tool her skill set and work in a career that offered immediate feedback and achievement when working in a one-on-one environment with a patient. Margaret is grateful to be a part of an amazing long standing vision therapy team that always encourages professional growth and enthusiasm in assisting patients of all ages to better their lives through vision. Margaret successfully completed the vision therapist certification process in 2007 from the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
Margaret and her husband have two young active boys. While growing up and living in the beautiful state of Colorado, Margaret’s favorite activities are biking, hiking, and reading.
Christy came to Impact Vision Therapy with a legal background. She is originally from New York and obtained a degree in Paralegal Studies from SUNY Broome. She moved to Colorado in 1997 and worked for a small law firm in Colorado Springs for 14 years. When her son was diagnosed in 2nd grade with eye teaming issues, it changed both his life and hers. He went through vision therapy and he became a different child at school and at home. He was below grade level in reading before vision therapy and by the end of 3rd grade he was at grade level and thriving in the classroom. He had been labeled extremely shy at school, but after therapy he became a much more confident student and it showed in class. Christy was excited to switch careers and immerse herself into a field which means so much to her and her family.
Christy lives in Monument with her husband and they lead a busy life chasing after their three children.
