Born in Rhode Island, raised in Connecticut, and educated in New York, Dr. Joanna likes to tell people, “I wasn’t lucky enough to be born in Colorado, but I was smart enough to move here!” Dr. Joanna is honored to be the 2018 (Market and Region) Walmart Doctor of the Year, and a Montrose 2023 Women of Distinction recipient. In her free time, Dr. Joanna likes taking photographs, playing ultimate frisbee, playing guitar, hanging out with her church family, convincing people to become foster parents, keeping her sourdough starter alive, and spending time with her husband Shane and their kids.

Dr. Colleen Tejchma, OD, FAAO

Born and raised in Michigan, Dr. Tejchma comes from Arizona where she earned her degree in Optometry. She always knew she’d end up in Colorado, having fell in love with the area after visiting friends. In addition to her degree, Dr. Tejchma completed a family practice/ocular disease residency at NSUOCO in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. She is also a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. In her free time, she enjoys playing volleyball, watching hockey, playing board games, and spending time with her husband Tanner, family, and friends.

Ophthalmic Tech

After sailing around the world in a hot air balloon, I birthed a litter of children. On my solo voyage, circumventing the globe, to meet up with my husband, as he backpacked through Mongolia, we felt it wasn’t the place to settle. We took flight once again but was blown off course and landed in Montrose. As life has slowed down, my passions include microbiology, hydroponic molecular genetics, and quantum physics. I have a sourdough experiment via AI that works magically. Travel is a favorite pastime.
