When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist

In high school, I gravitated towards the math and sciences which transitioned into a Biology major in college. My education accompanied with frequent visits to my eye doctor led to me pursuing my career in optometry.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

The improvement in patients daily lives through vision correction and the management of ocular disease. Also, the enjoyment of learning new and exciting breakthroughs in the optometry field.

Favorite concert you’ve been to

Fun fact

I grew up as a patient at Triangle Visions which is a large part of why I became an optometrist.

I lived in France in for 2.5 years when I was really young. I, unfortunately, lost the French language upon returning to the states.

My hobbies include running, crosswords, and Carolina basketball!
