She is an active member of the American Optometric Association and Colorado Optometric Association, serving as President in 2011-2012. Dr. Wharton served on the Colorado State Board of Optometric Examiners for eight years. Outside of the office, she enjoys reading, hiking and traveling with her husband, Eugene.
