Governor's Message:

Welcome to the website of Zone 12 of the Ohio Optometric Association! I'm Katherine Bickle, the current zone governor, and I look forward to another successful year for optometry!

I am a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Optometry and completed a cornea and contact lens fellowship at the University of Houston College of Optometry. I am a PhD candidate and clinical instructor at The Ohio State University College of Optometry. I also examine patients at ProCare Vision Center in Granville. My husband, Kevin, and I reside in Granville with our son, Walter.

I look forward to seeing you at our meetings this year, and I encourage you to contact me anytime with any feedback or suggestions to improve our zone. Each of you play a vital role in the success of zone 12 and the future of our profession.
