Cindy Blaydon was born in Aberdeen, Maryland and then moved about every three years with her mother and father, who was a US Army Cardiologist. She went to college at the University of California, Davis and studied Nutrition Science. She then followed her fathers footsteps and entered the US Army as a 2nd Lieutenant and went on to complete her Dietetic Internship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC. She later completed her Masters Degree in Health Care Administration. Cindy was awarded Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for her numerous contributions to her profession. Cindy practiced as a Registered Dietitian for 20 years in the US Army prior to retiring. During her second tour at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, she met her future husband Sean Blaydon who was completing his Ophthalmology residency. Sean then followed her to Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii where they got married. Cindy had her last duty assignment at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. Sean completed his fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery here in Austin. After Sean returned from his deployment in Baghdad, Iraq, Cindy and Sean moved to Austin, where Sean joined TOC Eye and Face (formerly Texas Oculoplastic Consultants).
