Dr. Poteet is an optometrist who completed her residency in ocular disease with the VA Medical System in Boston. While working with the VA population, she became intrigued with how her patients seemed to age so differently and what factors other than genetics influence healthy aging. She completed a Master’s of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine. She is a Certified Nutrition Specialist, speaker, author, and key opinion leader in nutrition and ocular health. She is past president of the Ocular Wellness & Nutrition Society. Dr. Poteet’s passion for the power of nutrition to change the course of disease began when her firstborn son overcame a devastating diagnosis as a small child by healing his gut through the power of evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle interventions.
