Dr. Jessica Klabunde began her studies at the University of Evansville after receiving a scholarship for academic excellence in 2003.  She continued her education at Harlaxton College in Grantham, England, where she developed a love for travel and adventure.  Later, she attended the University of Illinois at Chicago where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Visual Science.

Dr. Klabunde graduated Magna Cum Laude from Chicago’s Illinois College of Optometry in May, 2011.  During her time in optometry school, Dr. Klabunde particularly enjoyed participating in the visual screening process for Special Olympics Chicago athletes, and programs providing vision exams to Chicago Public Schools students.
