Allison S. Walz-Tarkowski, O.D.

Dr. Allison Walz-Tarkowski grew up in North Platte, Nebraska.  She attended the University of Wyoming from 2001-2005, earning her bachelors in Health Sciences.  She then attended the Illinois College of Optometry graduating in 2009.  While in optometry school she served as the Contact Lens Society president, the student liaison for the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, and volunteered on a mission trip in Honduras where the group provided over 500 eye exams.  Following graduation she practice in the suburbs of Chicago for 8 years before decided to get back to “The Good Life.”

Dr. Walz-Tarkowski sees patients of all ages, with a special interest in the pediatric population. “Treating my patients like family is something I strive for daily. Working to build relationships allows me to develop custom eye wear for hobbies, work environments, and specialty needs.”  Her favorite thing about optometry is seeing the eyes light up on a kid putting their first pair of glasses on.  With a love for fashion, she will always give you a second opinion so that you can look as good as you see.

Outside of the exam room, you can find me chasing my 3 yr old, or taking in the local cuisine abroad. I enjoy spending time with my husband John, daughter Kennedy, and our dog Axl.  My favorite things to do outside of the office are spending time golfing, working out and perfecting my wine palette.

A Nutrition Health Science graduate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a “roll-your-sleeves up” mentality. Growing my professional career as an Optometric Associate, I have experience in all facets of the optometric practice. My enthusiasm in visual processing and crafting specialty contact lenses, generate initiative in my professional career. I strive to build relationships and personalize eye wear for the daily demands of our patients.

When I am not saving the world one eye at a time, you can find my girlfriend and I engulfed in the outdoors. Growing up in rural western Nebraska, I am an avid outdoor enthusiast, food connoisseur, and music aficionado. Outside of work you can find me on the golf course, attending sporting events, and exploring local brewers. I find enjoyment experimenting in the kitchen, running new trails, and developing my social network. Recently, my girlfriend and I have developed a taste for home improvement and DIY projects.
