Personal History

Dr. Kramlich is originally from Eureka, South Dakota. She’s lived in Saint Louis and then a short amount of time in the Minneapolis area, but she ultimately returned to South Dakota and joined the Sioux Falls Vision Care Associates in 2017. She loves being active outdoors; you may see her hiking, rollerblading, or kayaking around Sioux Falls with her family. She also takes advantage of all that city life has to offer: frequenting locally owned restaurants, attending city events, and supporting Sioux Falls boutiques. She also frequents the dog parks with her two rescue dogs.

She completed training at the Saint Louis Children’s Hospital, several Veteran’s Affairs Hospitals, and at the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind & Visually Impaired, so she is well versed in varied areas of eye care. She feels like this knowledge is put to good use at Vision Care Associates; in fact, this is her favorite part about being a Vision Care doctor!  Our network of physicians provide family eye care,  so Dr. Kramlich can provide medically structured eye exams for you, your six-month-old infant, and your grandparent – all in the same day if you’d like!
