Dr. Kelly German grew up in Iowa, attended the University of Iowa, and went on to accomplish her Doctor of Optometry degree at the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 2016. She started her professional career at a clinic in Boulder, Colorado and has since been practicing in both Iowa and Colorado.
She completed her optometry training in a variety of specialties including ocular disease and surgical management at Wolfe Clinic in West Des Moines, and pediatrics at the St. Louis University pediatric ophthalmology clinic. Additionally, she also received an award from Allergan for her understanding and explanation of care and treatment of dry eye. She has a particular interest in fitting challenging contact lenses and finding the perfect lens to fit each of her patients’ lifestyles.
Professionally, she now focuses her attention on family practice optometry as she enjoys being able to care for entire families— from contact lenses to disease management, to infant eye exams— in a relaxed and informative environment. She is also a proponent of humanitarian work both nationally and locally; she has participated in a mission trips to Peru and aided in a free clinic in St. Louis monthly during her time as a student. Her passion for wellness flows over into her personal hobbies which include spending time outdoors with her husband, Dustin, her rescue dog, Kuper, and cat, Von. She also loves spending time with family and going to CSU and Bronco games.
