Hi my name is Kathy. I was offered a part-time job at Family Vision Associates in 1998, doing recall work. In April of 1989, Dr. Dudley was certified with the State of Michigan as a Low-Vision Specialist and he asked me to be his assistant. I consult with the patients, set up the low-vision appointments, demonstrate the low-vision devices, place the orders, dispense the difference devices, write the reports, and troubleshoot when needed. It is a very rewarding position and I very much enjoy working with Dr. Dudley and being a part of the family here at FVA. God has blessed me with my wonderful husband, Richard, three great kids (and their spouses), and nine tremendous grandkids.
