Originally from Rosemount, MN, Markie attended the University of MN and later Southern New Hampshire University and received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Science and Conservation. Although the degree is not utilized in her current position with us at Eye-35, she has encompassed herself in ocular health and optics knowledge directly from Dr. Fontana. Markie has been Dr. Fontana’s tech since 2015 and even though Minnesota is not a licensed state for techs, she received her Paraoptometrics Certification in 2020. Markie enjoys patient care immensely and truly loves the continuous knowledge that Dr. Fontana shares. Outside of work she enjoys being outdoors and spending time with her husband, son and two dogs.
