Dr. Elisabeth Swan has been practicing Optometry since 1991. She is a graduate of Pacific University College in Forest Grove, Oregon and received her undergraduate degrees (Biology and Spanish) from the University of Nevada-Reno.
She left Reno to join her husband, John Pelsh, who already resided in Fair Oaks. John proposed to the doctor on top of Mt. Kalapattar, elevation 18,500 feet, while on a trekking trip to Nepal in November 2000 and they were married in July 2001. John is a retired frame representative for REM Eyewear. He used to sell frames to the doctor when she owned her practice in Reno, and that is how they originally met.
Dr. Swan opened her Fair Oaks practice in October 2001 where she is now a resident. She is a member of the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce. She was honored to receive “Business of the year” in 2006 by the Fair Oaks Chamber of Commerce and is a corporate sponsor of Fair Oaks “Concerts in the Park” series each year.
In her free time, she enjoys hiking, backpacking, snow-shoeing, bicycling and traveling. Her great love in life (besides her husband) is her dog, “Chester” who is a Aussie/Heeler/Chihuahua mix who joins John and the doctor on all their adventures.
