Dr. William Gove grew up in Auburn, ME where he graduated from Edward Little High School in 2001. From there, he attended the University of Maine at Orono where he studied Information Systems Engineering and received his bachelor of science degree, graduating with honors. Following some grad work at the University of Maine in the same field, he decided to switch career paths and decided to enroll at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in Elkins Park, PA. While earning his Doctorate of Optometry, he did a rotation specializing in Low Vision, from which he draws upon when helping out at the Iris Network in Portland, ME.
While he attended Orono, he met his future (now current) wife, Sheridon, and they have one little boy, born in February of 2013, as well as a Goldendoodle who was born in January of 2014. They both enjoy skiing, traveling and visiting with friends and family.
In his personal time he enjoys weightlifting, brain games, and all things New England sports – GO PATS! Both he and his wife privately practice for Maine Optometry throughout the coastal Maine area and love the interactions with patients every day!
