Jennifer Samuel, O.D. is our most recent addition to Flagstaff Eye Care. Dr. Samuel grew up in the Maryland, D.C. area. She graduated from Andrews University in Michigan, with a B.S. in Zoology-Biomedical Option. Then, Dr. Samuel received her B.S. in Visual Science and Doctor of Optometry degree from the Illinois College of Optometry.
She moved to Kayenta, AZ on the Navajo Reservation to complete a primary care residency through Southern California College of Optometry. There she expanded her knowledge and received valuable experience in an area with a strong need for eye care. Dr. Samuel returned to the East Coast to practice Optometry in Pennsylvania and Maryland. She realized how much she missed the Southwest and its lifestyle after a year. She relocated back to Arizona and continued her career.
Dr. Samuel is an active member of the Arizona Optometric Association, Assistance League of Flagstaff Alpine Auxiliary, and served on the board of North Country Community HealthCare for 6 years. She is committed to her patients and values the relationships she has made with them. She believes in working hard and taking the time to enjoy hiking, biking/spinning and weight lifting on her free time. Jennifer and her husband, Dr. Nick Koshuta, have two energetic boys, Luke and Zachary, who help them to live life to the fullest.
