Biography

Dr. Tasha Hotz grew up in Barrie, Ontario. She received an Honours B.Sc degree from the University of Western Ontario. Upon completing her undergraduate studies, she married her husband Mike and they headed to Oregon where she received her Doctorate of Optometry from Pacific University. Her training included rotations with Indian Health Services in Wyoming and Veterans Affairs in Oregon. Dr. Hotz worked in private practice in B.C. where she enjoyed focusing on primary care and co-managing ocular disease. While at school Dr. Hotz participated in two eyecare mission trips. These trips to the Philippines and Costa Rica were great learning experiences and very rewarding. She hopes to participate in many more trips like these in the future. Tasha and her husband enjoyed their time in the Pacific Northwest but after the birth of their twin girls, they decided it was time to move a little closer to home. They love exploring the area, especially hiking to the many waterfalls.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Dr. Hotz enjoys seeing and treating all age groups. She especially enjoys visiting with and treating the geriatric population thanks to her training at a Veteran Affairs Hospital in Oregon.
