Dr. Christine Jackson

Dr. Christine (Christie) Jackson earned her Doctorate of Optometry from University California Berkeley School of Optometry.  She is board certified in the treatment of ocular disease and finished externships specializing in the fitting of advanced contact lenses, pediatric eye care, and the management of eye disease. A native of Southern California, Dr. Jackson was a student-athlete at UC Santa Barbara, graduating with honors in Biopsychology. Soon after finishing undergrad, she found herself living in North Lake Tahoe for a simple reason—to ski. She fell in love with this year-round community, met her husband Patrick, and became determined to plant permanent roots in Truckee.

You'll likely to catch Dr. Jackson outside of the exam room running or biking on a trail, skiing, or spending time with her Husband and daughter, Macy.
