Meet Our Director of Operations

As our Director of Operations, Lindsey Durr leads our clinic team and keeps our daily operations running smoothly. The clinic simply wouldn’t function without her! She shares a lot in common with the rest of her team: an honest love for eyewear, a passion for great patient experiences, and the charm that can only come from being Midwest born-and-raised. A lot of Lindsey’s work is behind-the-scenes, but her contributions to our clinic don’t stop there — reach out if you need anything, and she’ll ensure you’re satisfied with your eye care and eyewear!

“Kennedy Vision in Elk River was able to get me in for a last minute exam when I had some eye problems. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful.”
Testimonial Quote

- John M.

“Dr Traverse and all the staff at the Plymouth office are always so welcoming and professional. I have been going to Kennedy Vision for 20 years and they have always treated all my eye issues with great care. I recommend if you are looking for a new eye doctor this is the place you should go.”
Testimonial Quote

- Monica Z.

“After years of our insurance limiting us to another eye provider in Elk River, it was such a treat to have Kennedy Vision added as an option. Everyone was so friendly, and the doctor and techs were extremely thorough. This is such a change to what we’ve been used to. My husband and I both will be making Kennedy Vision Health Center our primary provider.”
Testimonial Quote

- Tanya B.

“I have a phobia of going to eye doctors. Always have, always will. But I was so impressed by this clinic. They could tell I was nervous and were so kind and no-judgmental about the whole process. They were patient when it took longer for me to do certain tests because I was nervous. They heard all of my concerns and did a very thorough exam. Can’t recommend highly enough!!”

“Kennedy Vision Health Center is by far the best eye care I have received! Dr. Traverse is intentional, kind and very thorough with my eye care needs. They also have a great optical department with a very fun and friendly staff to help style you with quality frames and lenses for clear and protective vision.”

Testimonial Quote

- Erik M.

“I have worn glasses for 24 years and contacts for 15. Over the years I have had many eye doctors but my experience at Kennedy Vision Health Center in Plymouth was the best I have ever had. Dr. Kennedy was outstanding and made changes to my prescription and asked questions no other eye doctor has before and I am seeing better than ever. The staff was extremely helpful in finding me new eye glasses and sunglasses as well. I cannot wait until they come in. Overall great experience and would recommend to anyone.”
