It's not uncommon for patients to remark, “Why can't all my doctors be as good as Dr. Jen?”

A large part of what patients love about Dr. Jen is the thoroughness of her eye exams. That and a warm and friendly demeanor, along with a terrific sense of humor, make all of our patients feel comfortable in her expert care. Dr. Jen takes her time to make sure that you understand every step of what she's doing with you, and explains why it's important that it be done.

With a degree in biology from Queen's University, a Doctor of Optometry degree from Pennsylvania College of Optometry, and intensive training in complex ocular diseases, Dr. Jen has a wealth of experience to draw on. At the same time, she's constantly keeping up on the latest technology and equipment. Being new to Inman Park, she wants to continue to cultivate the environment where she has enough time to perform comprehensive examinations for each patient while maintaining a schedule where wait times are kept to the absolute minimum.

Dr. Jen is an up-beat person, who loves a good hike as much as a new restaurant.  When she gets the chance, she is out and about exploring Atlanta or playing with her pupper.

​For any and all questions about lenses, however elementary or esoteric, Steve is your go-to guy. He can and will explain the physics of optics in terms so clear and simple you'll wish he'd been your high school science teacher. He's spent plenty of time deep in the trenches of optical labs, and he's been ABO-certified since 2010, so you can trust his expertise when it comes to designing lenses to suit your unique needs and style.

Steve has been working at In Focus since it first got off the ground in 2009, and he has been indispensable in every part of its operation ever since. Even as the practice has expanded and our staff has grown, Steve has been an evergreen presence at the office and in the neighborhood, and our patients are delighted to see him every time they stop in.


In a perfect world Steve would have a dozen dogs, but at the moment his rescue mix Cooper is the lucky sole recipient of all of his training and attention. You can find him in costume at DragonCon with his girlfriend and her daughter, or cheering on the Green Bay Packers every day of his life as their number-one fan.
