Meet Our Team


Office Manager,

Certified Paraoptometric


Melanie has been with Spring Hill Eyecare since January 2008.  Melanie started as an optometric assistant and is now our office manager.  She is the machine that keeps the whole business going.  Occasionally she will still conduct your pre-testing and special testing before seeing the doctor to stay sharp in that area.  Melanie enjoys meeting patients and helping meet your eye care needs.
