Jennifer Etchandy, O.D. is the current owner of Gypsum Vision, located inside of Costco. Dr. Etchandy focuses on correcting vision with glasses and contacts to help those with and without eye disease and/or dystrophies. Dr. Etchandy works closely with the eye care physicians in the valley to ensure that you are able to receive the help that you need in a timely manner.
Jennifer graduated from Southern California College of Optometry in 2017. She then took on a position with the United States Veteran Administration in Bend, Oregon until early 2019. Moving from Oregon to Nevada, she took on the challenge to work for the Center for Advanced Eye Care in Carson City, Nevada – a location that primarily focused on disease, surgical intervention, and emergent eye care. Being from Holton, Kansas, Dr. Etchandy was missing the Midwest, and wanted to move closer to home. North West Colorado was a perfect place to settle closer to family and still have access to the great outdoors. Dr. Etchandy, her husband Kyle, and their dog Bodhi are excited to be able to call Gypsum, Colorado their home.
When Dr. Etchandy is not seeing patients, she is often found outside: hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowboarding, fly fishing, and has now been convinced to join the local women’s hockey league. Her husband Kyle works for QuietKat, and you are likely to find both of them commuting to work on their ebikes! Bodhi, their dog, loves to cause a ruckus at Wanderlust – and is excited to meet her fellow doggy daycare members out on the trail.
Come say hello to Dr. Etchandy today!
