When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist

My junior year of college. I was majoring in Biology and getting a minor in Math when I went to a health careers seminar with a friend. After that seminar and finding out that meteorology relied on a specific math course that I hated, I was set on optometry.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

Solving problems and getting to work with people.

Favorite vacation

Anywhere in the mountains. My ideal vacation is hiking or sitting in a quiet place listening to nature.

Favorite concert you’ve been to

Metallica in 1991 at the Greensboro Coliseum and The Rolling Stones (Living Colour opened for them) in 1989 at the Houston Astrodome.

Do you have any pets

Yes! Two dachshunds, Otto (brown) and Oscar (black).
