When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist

During my last year of undergraduate study.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

Changing peoples’ lives! Whether through getting a much-needed pair of glasses for the first time, preventing vision loss through treating their eye disease, or helping a child perform better in school by improving their eye tracking and visual processing skills.

A cat, Izzy, who I’ve had as a companion since the start of optometry school.

Fun fact

I grew up on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania… but I don’t like milk or cheese!

My husband and I have 2 sweet boys – Calvin and Harrison.
