Is a native of Alabama, Joanne attended the University of Alabama. After moving to Northern Virginia, she worked with the Department of the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery before concentrating on raising her family. After returning to the workforce, Joanne joined a large private optometry practice in Northern Virginia as an optometric technician for almost twenty years. As part of that practice, she served as the Laser Vision Coordinator, introducing patients to LASIK and PRK as laser vision correction was first becoming approved in the United States. Joanne was the primary liaison between the private practice and TLC, and she had PRK over 15 years ago. Given her long history with TLC, Joanne was excited about the opportunity to join Dr. Holzman and his TLC team in January 2011. Here, she can be found in our Tysons Corner and Gainesville locations serving as an ophthalmic technician and patient counselor.
