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.  In 2018, Melanie was named Tennessee Paraoptometric of the Year.  At the 2019 SECO meeting in New Orleans, Melanie was named Paraoptometric of the South! At Optometry's Meeting in St. Louis, she was named the American Optometric Association's Paraoptometric of the Nation for 2019!  In 2021 she was named Practice Manager of the Year beating out 280 other candidates from the USA and Canada!



Melanie grew up in Alabama.  She graduated with a BS degree and has done graduate work in counseling and social work.  Married to an Alabama fan (Dale, who preaches for the Spring Meadows Church of Christ), she is an Auburn Tiger fan.  They have two grown sons and has five beautiful grandchildren.  Melanie enjoys spending time with family, entertaining, watching football, reading, relaxing on the porch swing, seeing our 50 states (having visited 34 as a family already), summertime, collecting Santas and is determined to develop a green thumb while living in Spring Hill.

When Amie is not helping someone to see the world more clearly you can find her with a book in hand pondering life's mysteries.
