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

I’m an avid tennis player and I have a budding second career as a painter.  We have two beautiful college-aged daughters that are also artists.
