Amy V. Harper was raised in the sweet, small town of Mt. Olive, North Carolina. She spent several summers working at Mt. Olive Pickle Company during in high school and looked AMAZING in hairnet and earplugs. While attending East Carolina University, she began working in optometric offices after her classes and during the summer.
By the time she arrived at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, she had worked in every aspect of an optometric practice except as the doctor. Amy’s father became disabled when she was in middle school, teaching her early on the value of hard work and the realization of how quickly life can change. “I remember how family or church friends would show up with groceries or meals and later how community organizations provided scholarships to help me pay for college. I learned what it really means to be the hands and feet of Jesus by being the recipient of many people pouring hope and love into me and my family.”
