Aundria Gaddy Lear

Doctor of Optometry

Thank you for visiting my site! I am proud to be a local girl, born in Asheville and raised in “papertown” (Canton). I attended Pisgah High School where I met my husband, Mark. After high school, I attended UNC-Asheville. The longest I have ever been away from our beautiful mountains was to obtain my professional education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I enjoyed Birmingham and made lots of long-lasting friendships but after 4 years there, home was calling, and I moved back here the day after graduation. Actually, I was so busy packing that I was almost late to graduation! I am delighted to now own and manage my own practice, right here in South Asheville. These mountains are not just a beautiful place to live; they are a part of who I am.

Business/Operations Consultant

I’m originally from Texas, but have been in the mountains for most of my life now. I went to Pisgah High School in Canton and still live there with my wonderful wife. In my free time, I look for any opportunity I can to get out onto the golf course. Occasionally, I play on the Golf Channel AM Tour. So far, I have two victories to my resume.
