1) Why did you become an optometrist?
I have always had a passion for healthcare. From the time I was a teenager, I have been working at medical practices. I have worn corrective lenses since age 8. I was fortunate to have a great mentor in eye care, who encouraged me to pursue optometry. I love helping people see and experience the visual world around them.

3) What is your favorite thing about being an eye doctor?
My favorite part of being an eye doctor is being able to meet a patient’s total eye needs. I love educating patients on all the options to meet their visual needs, including glasses and contact lenses. I also enjoy helping patients understand how the eye is a complex organ with its own health needs as well as the eye’s ability to reflect their total body well-being. Providing comprehensive eye care beyond 20/20 vision is extremely meaningful to me.
