Doctor Spotlight: Kim Tucker, OD
Family is at the root of everything Dr. Kim Tucker does. Even before she began her own family, she knew she wanted to help others. When she was a senior in college, she was at EyeCare Specialties for an exam when Dr. James Kirchner asked her if she had ever thought about optometry as a profession. She shadowed him the next day and became so impressed by the work he did for families all over Lincoln that she knew she found her direction.
Dr. Tucker knows that helping a person with their vision and the health of their eyes not only helps the patient, but improves their relationships with their families. She’s also proud of having been a part of the EyeCare Specialties team for enough time that she’s been able to watch entire families grow up before her eyes.
In her free time, Dr. Tucker continues to support families in Lincoln. She just recently finished a six-year term on the board for the Lincoln Children’s Museum and serves on the Medical Advisory Board for Lincoln Public Schools.
She shares her personal motto, “Just keep moving” with her own family as she participates in many activities with her husband and two children. You can often find Dr. Tucker and her crew at many sporting events or traveling around the state. Always on the move and being together as a family.
