Dr. Helbling is returning to Tennessee after spending almost 23 years with the Florida Eye Clinic in Orlando, Florida, where she served as the clinic director of one of the satellite offices. She has a true “house divided”, with one of her sons attending the University of Florida, and the other Florida State University. Dr. Helbling’s father, Larry Costello, was a professional basketball player who won a championship as both a player with the Philadelphia 76ers, and as a coach with the Milwaukee Bucks. As a result, she has a true love of sports, especially basketball and tennis. Other interests include Zumba, dancing, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.
