Jenifer Ambler, OD
Director (2017-2010)
 
Dr. Ambler graduated from the New England College of Optometry in 1987 and went straight into private practice in Brattleboro, VT.  She did her first VOSH mission trip as a 3rd year student; the NEWENCO student chapter wasn’t large enough to do their own trip that year so the students accompanied a group of ODs from VOSH-Washington to Cancun and Chetumal, Mexico.  Membership in Rotary led to a Rotary-sponsored multidisciplinary trip to El Salvador in 1994, after which Dr. Ambler renewed her involvement in VOSH, joining what was then called VOSH-NECO (New England), eventually becoming a State Director, and now President of VOSH-ONE.  She has made too many trips to El Salvador to count (in addition to clinics, her Rotary Club has had water projects there, and her church has a sister parish there), and loves continuing to visit the same communities where she has made many friends over the years.
