Specialty / expertise

Primary care and ocular disease.

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

 A father and son ophthalmology team let me frequently shadow them at their private clinic in my hometown during junior high school, this gave me my early fascination with eye care as a career.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

I've been so very fulfilled by having long-term connections with the community members; I'm especially grateful when entire families choose our clinic for their eye health care.  Developing friendships with many of these people and seeing them socially is also great fun.

Favorite vacation

The mountains of Montana have a special place in my heart!

Favorite concert you’ve been to 

The Avett Brothers at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater

Fun fact

I have a healthy sense of adventure... for my 40th birthday, I spent a month wandering tanzania.  I hope to pass on this desire for exploration to my young son.
