Introducing our newest optometry student, Katie Kroona! Katie is from Willmar, MN and completed her undergrad at Augustana University, Sioux Falls, SD. She is currently a student at Illinois College of Optometry, Chicago, IL.
Katie decided to pursue optometry after getting her first pair of glasses. “I got my first pair of glasses when I was younger and could see individual leaves on the trees, I thought it would be a shame if people would never get to experience that. I chose optometry because I knew I could help people with their vision and keep that vision as healthy as possible.”
