She offers an energetic, new perspective to the office and is up to date with the newest technologies and treatments.
Dr. Amber Jeannotte was raised in Yellowknife NT. She completed a Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta with honors in 2003. After graduation she took a couple years off to travel Central & South America. In 2010 Dr. Jeannotte attended Pacific University College of Optometry where she was awarded Valedictorian of her class. She completed ocular disease-based externships at a Veterans Hospital in Kentucky, co-management centre in Virginia Beach and health centre in rural Alaska. She also joined a mission trip to provide eye care in Belize.
From 2014-2021 Dr. Jeannotte practiced full scope rural optometry serving the community of Williams Lake and the surrounding areas. She travelled to surrounding communities, including Redstone, Nemiah Valley, Alexis Creek/Anaham, Dog Creek/Canoe Creek and Stone to provide eye care via mobile clinics. She also provided screenings for 3–4 year olds at a local pre-school and held an information session regarding the importance of regular eye exams and common childhood conditions for moms at pregnancy outreach.
Dr. Jeannotte is excited to join Summerland Optometry and to serve the community and surrounding areas. She is moving to Summerland with her husband and two young kids. Outside the clinic, Dr. Jeannotte loves to travel and enjoy the outdoors including kayaking, hiking and camping.
Dr. Grant Goods grew up in Toronto and graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1980. Upon graduation, he moved to B.C. with his wife and founded Summerland Optometry. There were several steps along the way, but the time and dedication allowed the practice to expand into its present location in 2012.
Dr. Grant Goods is married with three children, one of them being Dr. Kimberley Goods. Grant was a volunteer head soccer coach for eleven years with COYSA, coaching his sons’ soccer teams. He enjoys outdoor recreation including camping, fishing, boating, playing hockey and snowboarding.
Dr. Grant Goods is semi-retiring and moving into a support role at Summerland Optometry. Dr. Goods will have limited exam availability but he will be there for his patients who have ongoing problems or need special therapies. Dr. Goods is thrilled to be able to transfer his patients to Dr. Amber Jeannotte and who will join the practice in April 2021.
