Get to Know Dr. Susan Lake
A Nebraska native, Dr. Susan Lake has always had a great love for her home, wherever that has been over the years. She loves the work-life balance that running an optometry practice with her husband has brought her and writes about splitting her time between her work as an eye doctor and raising her three daughters on the blog Babyfocals.com.
While she considers her coworkers to be family in many ways, Dr. Susan Lake also takes time to get out on the lake with her husband and daughters for some quiet “immediate family” bonding time. While she, her husband, and the kids reset, they also love to take boat rides or go water skiing — any excuse to enjoy the water.
