Originally from Costa Rica, Dr. Wessels is now proud to call Calgary home. She completed her Optometry degree (with honours) from the University “U Latina de Costa Rica” in 2003. She practiced there for 3 years before moving to Canada after which she became licensed in 2008. Since then, she has been practicing at Bonavista Eye Clinic and Olds Eyecare Clinic. Dr. Wessels is fluent in both Spanish and English.
Volunteering her time for charity has always been a high priority for Dr. Wessels. She has been involved in several eye care missions in Costa Rica and continues to support fundraising events to help these organizations.
Dr. Wessels has a special interest in pediatrics and contact lenses; however, she looks forward to providing thorough eye care to patients of all ages.
In her spare time, Dr. Wessels enjoys outdoor activities with her husband, Pieter, and two girls, Arianna and Julia.
