About Us

Sherman H. Peirce, OptometristOptometrist Sherman Peirce

Raised a stone’s throw from Draper, Doctor Peirce (yes, it is spelled Peirce not Pierce) has been examining eyes at South Hills Eye Care since 2008.  He graduated with distinction from Pacific University in 2005 as a Doctor of Optometry.

His undergraduate work was completed at the University of Utah.  Dr. Peirce earned a Bachelor of Arts in communications.  Dr. Peirce is fully licensed in Utah including therapeutic prescribing privileges.  He is an active member of the Utah Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association and proud to be an optometrist.

As a communications graduate, Dr. Peirce takes pride in spending time educating and learning from patients.  Besides optometry, Dr. Peirce enjoys sports of all kinds (either as a spectator or player) and backpacking in the Uinta mountain range.  Dr. Peirce donates a considerable amount of time to service in his community.  He most appreciates, however, the time contentedly spent at home with his four children and wife, Jocelyn.

Amber Kennison

Amber joined our office in August 2011.  She has embraced the opportunity to work in eyecare and has quickly become an indispensable part of our office.  Amber has completed extensive optical training including the ECP University program for Advanced Dispensing Professionals.

Whether you need help selecting frames and lenses, learning how to care for contact lenses, or determining your insurance coverage, Amber is prepared to answer your questions.

Although completely unrelated to him, Amber really loves it when you bring up old Sam Kinison jokes.  Amber enjoys mountain biking, camping, surfing (in California, not on the Great Salt Lake) and listening to her fiance, John, play a mean accordion and tuba (though not at the same time).


Jennifer Goode

Jennifer recently moved to Utah from Washington state.  Though new to the optical industry, Jennifer has years of experience providing excellent customer service as a casino card dealer.  She certainly knows what it is like on the patient side.  She has been wearing glasses since the fourth grade and contact lenses since she was fifteen years old.

Jennifer loves meeting new people and being able to put a smile on their face while helping them see and look their best in glasses and contacts.

Jennifer loves singing karaoke.  Her favorite song to perform is “Alone” by Heart and almost all country music (don’t hold this against her—she is still a great person).  She looks forward to family get-togethers and is looking forward to starting her own traditions as she is engaged to be married this summer.  Besides making endless wedding decisions, Jennifer and her fiance enjoy going to movies, exploring the Wasatch Front, and doting over her cat, Nyxie.


Spencer Johnson, Optometrist

Dr. Johnson established South Hills Family Eye Care back in 2005.  He left us in 2008 to pursue other practice opportunities.  Dr. Johnson was the original optometrist for a large number of our current patients.

To keep you updated on his whereabouts: Dr. J is now an Assistant Professor of Optometry at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.  If you don’t mind a little travel, Dr. Johnson would be happy to see you during his clinic hours at the school.
