Doctor & Staff
Dr. Melissa McCulley
Hi, I’m Dr. Melissa McCulley and I opened McCulley Optix Gallery in 2006 to bring fabulous eyewear and excellent eyecare to Fargo! I love my job more every day with all the great people I get to see and meet. I was born and raised in Fargo and now I’m getting to raise my family in this growing city that I’m happy to call home again. My 2 girls keep me busy with their activities and our quest to visit all the local parks and playgrounds. And time at the lake is a highlight for our family in the summer.

Jenna Gilbertson Steiner
Office Manager, Optician
Hello, I’m Jenna Gilbertson Steiner and I am crazy passionate about all things eyes and optical! I have been at McCulley Optix Gallery for over 7 years and I still love the reasons that drew me here in the first place: our unique frames, high quality lenses, and how much pediatric vision care we do! I am originally from Detroit Lakes and I love this area of the country because of how kind and giving everyone can be. If it is money, time, or talents, the people here do a great job of supporting each other and non-profits. In my free time you will find my husband and I exploring local breweries or swinging in our hammocks in the backyard.

Hi! I am Teri Krutsinger and I love the optical business! I’ve worked in many facets of the industry and am thrilled to be back on the dispensing side here at McCulley Optix Gallery. It is so much fun for me to help you choose your perfect frame or pair of sunglasses from the amazing collections we carry. I am a Minnesota girl who never thought she’d live in Fargo, ND. But here I am, and proud to be a part of such a giving and close-knit community. In my free time I enjoy reading, traveling to warm places with my husband, and time spent with our adult children.
