Dr. Gerbing was raised in the Pacific Northwest, specifically, Spokane, Washington. When he was six years old, he went to the optometrist and was prescribed corrective lenses, which changed his life. Homeschooling increased his love for science and math as he desired to pursue a career in optometry to share the joy of clear sight with his community. Dr. Gerbing chose the Grand Junction area for its vast outdoor resources, including hiking, skiing, and camping. Additional interests include wildlife photography, playing piano, bass guitar, ukulele and recording original music.
