Dr. Gove was born in Abington Pennsylvania, moved to Maine at age 2, and grew up in the Freeport area. Dr. Gove currently lives in Freeport with her husband, William, where they are raising two sons, Oliver b. 02/13 and Emeric b. 09/15.

Dr. Gove received her undergraduate degree from the University of Maine in Orono in Biology with a minor in Psychology. She then went on to attend Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University at the same time as Dr. Achenbach and Dr. William Gove.

Dr. Gove enjoys skiing, traveling, spending time at the family camp, scrapbooking her adventures, and knitting.

Dr. Gove joined the Maine Optometry team officially as an OD in the spring of 2012, yet has been a member for life as she would sit on her dad’s (Dr. Littlefield’s) lap and help with charts as a child. She loves the sense of home and family that Maine Optometry has.
