Since the beginning of her optometry career in 2000, Dr. Siobhan Beeksma strives to help others see optimally. She opened Espy Specs in 2020 to bring individualized eye care to her patients. That is what drives all of her patient encounters.
Dr. Beeksma grew up in Eau Claire and went to Regis High School and on to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire for her undergraduate degree in Chemistry. She then attended the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago where she did externship rotations at the University of Chicago and Westside VA. She moved back to Eau Claire and practiced at Chippewa Valley Eye Clinic for 19 years before pursuing her dream of opening her own practice.
Dr. Beeksma is a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry. Her focus areas of the exam included ocular disease and contact lenses. She is a member of the American Optometric Association as well as the Wisconsin Optometric Association.
Outside of work, Dr. Beeksma loves spending time with her husband Tad and her two children. Now that the kids are teenagers, she especially loves when they are willing to spend time with her. She also likes exploring new places. Whether a new hiking trail or a new city, she can always find something interesting along the way. She tries to remember that life is about the journey more than the destination.
