Samantha Crunden, COA

Samantha Crunden, COA, is the Marketing and Surgical Director at Atlantic Eye Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. Since 2007, Samantha has held several positions including patient services representative, ophthalmic scribe, lead technician, refractive and cosmetic coordinator, and surgical counselor. This experience has allowed her a unique perspective of the practice as a whole which she contributes to her success in her current role.

Although Samantha loves every aspect of ophthalmology, her passion lies in refractive surgery. As a previous LASIK patient, she can personally empathize with the patient journey and states that there is no better feeling than helping to restore the sight of others.

In her spare time, Samantha values and enjoys spending time with her husband and three children. Together they can be found building sandcastles at the beach, singing and dancing to Disney music, baking, and bingeing the latest Netflix series.
