Dr. Annette has strong roots in the area. She was born and raised in Valparaiso and is a graduate of Niceville High School. Her love of science prompted her to attend the University of Montevallo where she received a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. Dr. Annette worked as an environmental chemist in south Florida and then as a research assistant with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service in Gainseville, FL. With 8 years of chemistry under her belt, Dr. Annette decided to pursue an earlier passion and was accepted to Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN. She graduated in 1991. After practicing optometry in Alabama and Pensacola, Dr. Annette felt the tug of her hometown. She returned to Niceville/Valparaiso in 1997 to open her practice. She spends most of her free time taking advantage of the great outdoor activities in the area, such as canoeing on Econfina Creek, hiking in Torreya State Park, and SCUBA diving in local springs and the Gulf. Dr. Annette is hands-on, from baking her own bread to gardening to renovating her kitchen herself.
