We wanted to begin our Staff Spotlight Series by introducing the person that is the glue that holds our vision center together. Meet Nancee Ball our Surgery Coordinator and team member at Shofner Vision Center for 20 years.

“Nancee is one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with- inside and out. Full of compassion and personality, she is been a true joy to know,” says Patricia Whiteside, Practice Administrator.

We are thankful that Nancee took the time to answer the questions below, as most days are very busy with ongoing tasks that require focus and the ability to prioritize and stay organized. Yet, somehow she manages to keep things running smoothly, with a constant friendly and caring personality, which is also appreciated by our patients.
