Dr. Jaclyn DeHayes-Rice

Leaving her roots, she then moved to Forest Grove, Oregon to obtain her Doctorate of Optometry at Pacific University, where she graduated with honors in 2013. After graduation, Dr. DeHayes-Rice worked in the Denver metro area gaining experience in contact lenses and primary care optometry. From there she moved on to specialize in pediatrics for over three years working along the Front Range. She is excited to be back in beautiful Fort Collins and to have the opportunity to serve the wonderful community here. In her free time, you can find her paddle boarding at Horsetooth Reservoir, running along Spring Creek Trail, or cross-country skiing.
