Education

Undergrad at Campbell University, and Optometry School at Pennsylvania College of Optometry

Specialty/Expertise

General optometry and disease management

When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist?

In college, I shadowed multiple specialties and optometry just seemed like the perfect fit.  There was more meaningful patient interaction than any other medical field I saw.  Plus, working in people's mouths did not peak my interests

Favorite part of being an optometrist

The patients.  I just really enjoy talking to people and trying to help out their lives any way that I can.  Listening is a big part of my job and I enjoy hearing everyone's story

Favorite vacation

I just came back from Jamaica, which was amazing. Generally, I love Asheville in the winter, and any and every beach in the summer

Favorite concert you’ve been to 

I went to Bonnaroo 10 years ago and it was awesome, but I'd have to give it to Matchbox 20.  I saw them last year and they rocked my socks off

Do you have any pets?

I have a shar pei/lab mix named Dap, he's a dufus but we love him

Fun fact

I can and will rap the entirety of Ice Ice Baby on command
