One of her extra-curricular activities was doing makeup at the Hal Prince Theatre at Penn. After completing her medical education at Jefferson Medical College she interned at The Bryn Mawr Hospital. In what can only be called a “gap year”, Dr. Boerner worked as an Emergency Room physician near home and as a Primary Care doctor for the Indian Health Service in Coulee Dam Washington, Barrow Alaska, and Philadelphia Mississippi. She completed her Residency in Ophthalmology at Emory University in Atlanta, where she also did her fellowship in the then new field of Intraocular Lenses and Ophthalmic Lasers.In 1983, Dr. Boerner founded Eyes of Boston, the premier solo cataract surgery practice in Boston for many years. She has published more than 23 papers, taught surgery, and lectured all over the world. While cataracts were her primary focus, she also performed eyelid surgery and repairs. After moving to her farmlet in Vermont, she practiced ophthalmology in rural New Hampshire. Today, she is happy to be working with people from all over the Upper Valley. She sees people at her home, 20 minutes from exit 8 off Highway 91, or 20 minutes south of Woodstock depending on how you approach. Her home is centrally located in Reading, Vermont and it is easily accessed from both Interstates 89 and 91.
