I’ve wanted to be an optometrist since early in grade school. I was initially inspired to go into this field by my uncle, who had low vision, because I wanted to help others like him. While I was in school, I realized I was happiest when I was working with children. I loved being able to provide early intervention for visual problems.
As a pediatric optometrist, I have regular clinics for children and adolescents. I also have a focus on seeing patients with visual effects from a concussion or traumatic brain injury. I believe every child deserves to have access to quality healthcare and be treated with dignity and respect, including treatment for their eyes and vision. My colleagues and I strive to provide the best care to children, so they can reach their full potential.
After meeting rigorous requirements, I became a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry in 2018. In my research, I’m interested in the visual effects from traumatic brain injury and its treatment.
I enjoy spending my free time reading, traveling and, more recently, running — especially on trails. My favorite race so far was the Stone Steps 27K. I’m also an avid animal lover and have three cats and a dog at home.
