DDr. Layman is a volunteer for the Kindness to Prevent Blindness (KTPB) mobile unit. In collaboration with the Elkhart Education Foundation, the KTPB eye care mobile unit was designed with the goal to provide free vision screenings, exams, and glasses to all 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 8th grade students in Elkhart and St. Joseph County Schools—as is required by the Indiana Department of Education. This nonprofit initiative, funded by tax-deductible donations and in-kind community support, is focused on ensuring school children have the vision care they need to be successful in school.
In addition, Dr. Layman is delighted to be with Boling Vision Center because of its commitment to providing state of the art treatment as well as compassionate care to patients in the Michiana area.
Dr. Layman and her husband, Geoff, a political science professor at Notre Dame, are proud parents of three girls: Grace, Caroline, and Kate. Grace is a student at Saint Mary’s College. Dr. Layman enjoys helping out with the PTO on her days off and being co-leader of Caroline and Kate’s Girl Scout troop. Dr. Layman also enjoys watching Notre Dame sports.
The best part of my job is getting to know my patients on a personal level and seeing them return year after year.
