Arizona College of Optometry
Class of 2017Christine Shukis, O.D., grew up in the Chicago suburbs and attended the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for her undergraduate degree. Leaving for a new adventure she moved to sunny Arizona to obtain her Doctorate of Optometry at the Arizona College of Optometry Midwestern University. Dr. Shukis’ passion for learning and sharing with others was explored through a National Eye Institute Research program, affiliations with the American Optometric Association, and the American Academy of Optometry. After graduation, she moved to complete a residency program in Ocular Disease at the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center. While there she was excited to serve a wonderful population and work on her goal of making patients feel comfortable, feel understood, and understand their healthcare. Dr. Shukis was ecstatic to make a move to Fort Collins to be with her loving husband, Tyler. She loves exploring the natural beauty on hikes and ski trips and making new friends. She will continue to be an avid traveler who enjoys hearing and sharing new food, places, and experiences. She currently practices at Poudre Valley Eye Care in Ft. Collins, Colorado.
