Dr. Hines-Beard is ready to listen to meet your eye care needs. She loves to work together with her patients, so they can make the best decision for their eye health and overall well-being. Her favorite part of becoming an Optometrist is seeing the smile on a patient’s face when they say, “this is the best that I’ve seen in years.”
Outside of the office, Dr. Hines-Beard and her family are avid travelers. She enjoys good food, fancy coffee, and likes to escape to other worlds through reading.
