“I enjoy working with patients with binocular dysfunction, amblyopia, strabismus, pushing athletes to their peak performance, however, my passion is traumatic brain injury. I get joy from restoring hope through vision therapy. My greatest reward is when patients say, thank you for giving me my life back.”
In her spare time Stefanie enjoys spending time with family and friends and attending Broncos games.
