After growing up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Dr. Mercer graduated from the University of Calgary with a B.Sc. in Zoology. She received her Doctorate of Optometry from the Illinois College of Optometry, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and stayed in Chicago to complete her residency in Primary Care and Ocular Disease at the Illinois Eye Institute. After moving to California, she worked in private practice and was an associate professor at the Southern California College of Optometry until she followed her husband to his hometown and has now settled in Portland.
Dr. Mercer is excited to bring her expansive expertise to Uptown EyeCare & Optical. She prides herself on her exceptional patient communication and provides full scope eye care with a personal caring touch. Dr. Mercer and her young family greatly enjoy all the Pacific NW has to offer, especially the outdoor recreational activities and the incredible culture and cuisine of Portland.
Dr. Mercer is not accepting new patients anymore. Currently, she is only providing part-time coverage for Dr. Friberg as needed.
