Dr. Megan Kieffer is from just across the river in Menomonie, WI and also spent a good portion of her childhood in southeast Iowa. Staying consistent with her Midwest roots, she attended the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities for her undergraduate education and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry while also being an active member of the University of Minnesota Marching Band. She went on to complete her optometric education at The Ohio State University and graduated in May of 2021 with her Doctor of Optometry degree.
While in school, Dr. Kieffer’s clinical training took her to the Hampton Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Hampton, VA where she gained extensive training in the diagnosis and management of many ocular conditions including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and cataracts. Additional clinical training was completed in Stillwater, MN and Columbus, OH. She was also involved in several organizations spanning multiple areas of optometry including ocular disease, contact lenses, low vision, optometry advocacy and Special Olympics vision screenings. She is a member of the Gold Key International Optometric Honor Society and the American Optometric Association.
Dr. Kieffer is excited to be returning to the Twin Cities to provide eye care to the Apple Valley Community. In her free time she enjoys cheering on the Gophers and Vikings, cooking, and spending time with her family and fiancé.
