Jacki Neumann has been at In Depth Vision since 2018. After earning her bachelor's degree in Dietetics from U.C. Davis, she married her husband, Mark. In 2012, with a young family, they moved out of the Bay Area where they both grew up, to the more rural city of Auburn. Jacki worked as a receptionist at Dr. Odineal's Optometry practice and eventually joined our staff as a Vision Therapist. Jacki enjoys working with both our young and adult patients. Her education is ongoing as she continues to learn more about Vision Therapy through classes and online courses. "It is so rewarding to see our In Depth Vision patients respond so well to Vision Therapy and increase their abilities to track, focus, develop their visual skills and visual processing and then apply what they are learning to their schoolwork and everyday lives."
Family is very important to Jacki. As a family, we attend church together, and also enjoy cheering on their son, Christian and daughter, Ana as they play year-round competitive Volleyball at the High School Varsity and Collegiate levels.
