Meet Fair Oaks Optometrist, Dr. Elisabeth Swan
Dr. Elisabeth Swan has been practicing Optometry since 1991. She is a graduate of Pacific University College in Forest Grove, Oregon and received her undergraduate degrees (Biology and Spanish) from the University of Nevada-Reno.
She left Reno to join her husband, John Pelsh, who already resided in Fair Oaks. John proposed to the doctor on top of Mt. Kalapattar, elevation 18,500 feet, while on a trekking trip to Nepal in November 2000 and they were married in July 2001. John is a retired frame representative for REM Eyewear. He used to sell frames to the doctor when she owned her practice in Reno, and that is how they originally met.
