Dr. Kowaleski grew up in Sandusky, Ohio and became interested in optometry at a young age due to her need for corrective lenses and vision therapy. She attended Kent State University where she studied Molecular and Cellular Biology. In 2005 Allyson moved to the southside of Chicago where she attended the Illinois College of Optometry. She graduated magna cum laude and received the Clinical Excellence Award after completing externships in Ocular Disease, Pre/Post-op LASIK and Urgent care. Allyson joined Rinkov Eyecare in 2010 and has continued to grow with her Reynoldsburg practice as it joined Eyecare Partners in 2016. When not in the office she enjoys spending time with her husband, their daughter, and twin sons.
