Dr. Kelsey Snow was born and raised in BC, where she completed her Bachelor of Science with distinction in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Simon Fraser University. Dr. Snow graduated with honours from the University of Waterloo Optometry program, where she was awarded the Ontario Association of Optometry Award for "Excellence in Patient Management," as well as the CooperVision Contact Lens Award.
Her final year of externships included a term at OMNI Eye Specialists in Baltimore, MD, where she worked closely with ophthalmologists specialized in glaucoma, retina, anterior segment, and oculoplastics.
Dr. Snow is passionate about giving back to the less privileged and has participated in two optometric service trips to date (Paraguay in 2013 with Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity, and Jamaica in 2015 at the Foundation for International Self Help). She looks forward to future outreach opportunities, internationally and in her local community.
She and her husband, Chris, have a daughter, Payton (2020) and are expecting another bundle of joy in July! They spend most of their spare time at playgrounds and walking their dog, Maxi, in Pacific Spirit Park. They’ve also enjoyed introducing Payton to their outdoor hobbies of biking and hiking, and hope to get her on the ski hill this coming winter.
Dr. Snow will be taking a maternity leave starting in July with plans to return to patient care in early 2023. In the meantime, her patients will be well cared for by Dr. Pavan Atwal and Dr. Jasmine Dhesi.
