After finishing her bachelor’s degree at University of Alaska Anchorage, Dr. Ashley Kettler went to California to become an Optometrist. She graduated in 2013 from Southern California College of Optometry. Dr. Kettler is licensed through the California State Board of Optometry and the Alaska State Board of Optometry with Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agent (TPA) and glaucoma certifications. Her clinical rotations included the US Naval base in Yokosuka, Japan, the Indian Health Hospital in Lawton, Oklahoma and the Veteran Affairs Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Following graduation, Dr. Kettler joined a private practice in Oceanside, CA before her Alaskan roots called her back to join Northern Lights Eye Care. Dr. Kettler and her husband are happy to be back in Alaska with their two goldfish, where she enjoys hiking, snowboarding, yoga, the ocean and experimenting with new recipes.
