Michelle Bernard – Front Desk/Scheduling

Michelle began with our clinic in October 2013.  Several years of experience in optometry and ophthalmology offices as well as experience working in a lab that fabricates eyeglass lenses give Michelle a great understanding of most aspects of our office.  When you call Vision Source-Boise to schedule an appointment for you or your family, it’s usually Michelle’s friendly voice that you’ll hear.  She’s often the first and last person that you’ll see in our office and we know you’ll enjoy meeting her.

When not in the office, she spends time with her 18-year-old daughter or other family members scattered throughout the Northwest.  She also enjoys photography, reading, movies, discovering new Treasure Valley wines, taking her Miniature Pinscher Buster for walks, and the occasional nap!
