Dr. Polk attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Optometry, where she graduated with honors. She fell in love with optometry and caring for patients while working as a technician at Family Eye Care. It is a wish become reality to return to the practice that started her passion for eye care. She enjoys seeing patients of every age with a focus on primary eye care, specialty contact lenses, and dry eye.

Dr. Polk grew up just down the road in Rayville, Louisiana. She graduated from Louisiana Tech University, where she was a cheerleader and met her husband, Nicholas Polk. They have been married since 2016 and are delighted to return to the Monroe area.

When Dr. Polk is not seeing patients, she enjoys traveling with her husband, snowboarding, scuba diving, and hiking with her Cavalier King Charles, Odie.
