Dr. Christine Bishop graduated with honors from Nova Southeastern University college of Optometry in 2008.  After graduation she joined her father as a private practice optometrist in her home town of Okeechobee.  She currently is a member of both the Florida Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association. 

Since her graduation, she has been actively involved in her profession and community.  In the spring of 2009 she was elected as Vice-President of the Treasure Coast Optometric Society, a position she retained until she was elected as President in 2012.  Today, she continues to remain as President of the four county society.  Dr. Bishop is also a co-sponsor of Eye Care for the Needy of Okeechobee where she has given her time for the past 5 years and continues to give her support in the future. Each year, this event provides at least 25 indigent people with a comprehensive eye exam and glasses.

Dr. Bishop also attends and speaks at many local events to explain the importance of eye care and overall good health within her community.  She currently resides in Okeechobee with her husband and two kids.

Dr. Bishop is eager to start her newly appointed position on the Board of Directors for the Health Council of Southeast Florida.
