Born and raised in Ohio, Dr. Bates graduated with a degree in Biology from The Ohio State University. She received her Doctor of Optometry degree from the New England College of Optometry in Boston. While on the East Coast, she met her husband and fell in love with the area, deciding to make it her home. Her optometric interests include primary vision care, contact lens fittings, pediatrics, and geriatrics.
Dr. Bates enjoys spending time with her husband and children at the beautiful beaches in our area. Hiking, kayaking, and bird watching, are some of her favorite activities. She is excited to be living on the south shore and exploring everything it has to offer especially through the eyes of her children.
