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

As a nearsighted kid, I guess my fate was sealed. I decided to pursue Optometry as a freshman in college.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

I enjoy earning the trust of patients over the long haul, improving their lives, and having some fun in the process.

Favorite vacation

Do I have to choose?  I like the mountains AND the beach.

Favorite concert you’ve been to 

The English Beat- 7 times!

Do you have any pets? 

We have a labradoodle named Roxy and a golden doodle named Indiana Bones (Indi)!

Fun fact
