Denise Burtzlaff, CPOA – Receptionist
Denise grew up in Custer, SD. She joined our staff in 2008. She enjoys working with the public and has experience in the tourism industry, bookkeeping and banking. She earned certification as a Paraoptometic Assistant. She learned that optometry is so much more that just testing the eyes for glasses and that eye health exams can prevent many conditions that go unnoticed.
She is glad she lives in the Black Hills where she enjoys her family, hiking, camping, gardening and touring on motorcycle.

Paula and her family love nature and often camp at Angostura or somewhere in the National Forrests. She loves watching her husband and son build and wreck demolition derby cars.
