Dr. Kenning, a Pacific University graduate, completed a residency at the Veterans Administration St. Louis Health Care System in primary care and geriatric disease.  She later served as Director of their weekend referral clinic that was developed to increase access to care for veterans with eye health needs.

In addition to two years working in private practice in Vancouver, WA, emphasizing dry eye care and surgical co-management, she brings experience managing a hospital-based optometry practice where she worked within an interprofessional setting.  Dr. Kenning, also passionate about community outreach, is looking forward to serving as an attending in Pacific's Interprofessional Diabetes Clinic in Hillsboro, providing care for the underserved, primarily Latino, population with diabetes. She is a fellow in the American Academy of Optometry.
