Visual rehabilitation (e.g. low-vision rehabilitation) When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist – I saw that Optometry would enable me the opportunity to help people.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

My favorite part of being an optometrist is engaging with my patients through each age and stage of their lives while helping them meet life’s visual demands.

Favorite vacation

A mountain with a water-slide shooting out of it!

Favorite concert you’ve been to

The Avett Brothers at the NC Art Museum Fall 2006 when they debuted their newest member on cello.

Do you have any pets

Otto named for the bus driver on The Simpson’s & newest family member Oscar – both short-haired miniature dachshunds.

Fun fact

I play cello in a fabulous band, the Mysti Mayhem Trio!
