Dr. Nancy Simmons

Vision is a precious gift, and every person has a story that affects the way they see. It’s my honor and joy to serve the Monticello area, hear your story, and help you achieve clear vision.

I grew up with nine siblings on a dairy farm in Central Minnesota. I received my bachelor’s degree at the College of St. Benedict and went on to optometry school at Southern College in Memphis, TN. After living out West for a few years after school, it’s wonderful to be back in Minnesota near family.

I now live near St. Cloud with my husband Kevy, who is also an optometrist, and our three kids. In my free time, I love to be outdoors, experiment in the garden, pray, read non-fiction, and work out.
