Michele Thompson

After years of practicing in New York State, Dr. Thompson is happy to be joining a practice so close to her home in Rumson, NJ. Dr. Thompson grew up in Buffalo, NY, but since moving to Monmouth County and raising her children here, she is firmly entrenched in the community and both the school systems of Holy Cross and Rumson/Fair Haven. Dr. Thompson graduated from LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY and earned her Doctor of Optometry from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University.

Before her work in private practice, Dr. Thompson was able to obtain varied clinical expertise in multidisciplinary settings such as the Veteran's Administration Medical Center of Wilkes-Barre, Pa and the Eye Institute of Philadelphia. Dr. Thompson is an active member of the American Optometric Association, the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians, and the Monmouth/Ocean County Optometric Society.

Outside of the optometry office you may see Dr. Thompson driving her 3 children to basketball, soccer, football or dance. She and her family are avid beach lovers and though she is still a long suffering Buffalo Bills fan, she most enjoys cheering on her son at Rumson/Fairhaven football games or her daughters at their dance competitions.
