Ashley Gurganus joined the practice in 2020 as an Optometric Technician. Born and raised in North Carolina. She is mother to a sassy girl, Emmalyn. Growing up, she always wanted to be a teacher, but decided to take a leap of faith and go a different direction in 2017. She says it was the best decision because it has put her where she is today. Over the years, she has enjoyed learning more about the anatomy of the eye and providing the best patient care. In her spare time, she enjoys time with her daughter on Target and Starbucks trips, spending time with her family and friends, and being at the beach.
