Meet Our Associate, Heather Ashley, O.D.
Dr. Ashley was born and raised in Abingdon, Virginia and completed her undergraduate degree at James Madison University (Go Dukes!). After working in the eyecare field as a technician, Dr. Ashley’s love for optometry blossomed. She moved to Memphis, Tennessee for optometry school and received her Doctorate of Optometry degree from the Southern College of Optometry. During school, she attended several Remote Area Medical clinics providing eye exams for over 200 underinsured and noninsured patients at each location. She also provided vision screenings for students in the local community, and traveled to local nursing homes to provide eye exams while in Memphis. Dr. Ashley was also recognized for Outstanding Clinical Achievement during her third and fourth year of optometry school.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with her husband and two dogs. She loves cooking, kayaking, mountain biking, and hiking. You may catch her at a Norfolk Tides or Norfolk Admirals game as well.
Dr. Ashley is a member of the American Optometric Association, Virginia Optometric Association, Tidewater Optometric Association, and an alumni of Gamma Sigma Sigma national service sorority.
Dale also keeps the books for the practice, posts insurance payments, does payroll and manages the computer systems. All these things he has been doing since Dr. Leverett opened her first practice over 20 years ago!
Before Dale came to work full time in our office, he worked in the Information Technology Department at C.H.K.D., First Hospital Corporation and Lillian Vernon Corporation.
Dale has been married to Dr. Leverett since 1988.
She is a native of Virginia Beach and graduated from Salem High School. Kelly works hard to make your experience at our office the best that it can be!
