Sheila Connolly

I have worked in the medical field as a medical secretary since 1986. I joined Dr. Soares when he started his new practice, Soares Ocular Surgery, P.C. in May of 2007. I have a number of responsibilities in the office including, office manager, secretarial, billing, scheduling, transcription, filing and data entry.

Family is most important to me and spending time with them and taking care of them is what I like to do. I enjoy working in my flower gardens. I am an artist. In quiet moments I like to read. I am a true camper and love to be outdoors. I work with a nice group of people and their support is important in my life.
