Background

Dr. Kraus graduated from SUNY College of Optometry in 1991. She began her career as an intern in low vision at Montefiore medical center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She did an additional internship in primary care at the Northport VA Hospital in New York. Hobbies: Dr. Kraus lives a very active lifestyle and enjoys swimming and biking. She has been recently exploring all the local bike trails in central New Jersey. In addition, she has 2 teenagers who constantly keep her busy. Favorite Part of Working For RECA: The opportunity to work with the geriatric community and interacting with them. “They have so much wisdom and experience and I feel that they are often not listened to or given the respect they deserve.” Dr. Kraus treats the residents with dignity and takes the time to listen to them in order to help them as best she can. This is not a job that everyone can do and she is glad that she has the opportunity to do so.
