As a pediatric eye doctor, what’s most important to me is caring for my patients and their families. I make sure they fully understand their child’s eye condition. And I truly enjoy watching kids grow up and become adults.
I want the children I treat, and their parents, to know I will work to ensure their overall success and happiness. I strive to make all my patients feel they are the most important people to me and my department.
I provide care for a wide variety of vision conditions and patients, including amblyopia, binocular vision disorders, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, myopia control, strabismus, uveitis and special needs populations.
I have wanted to be a physician since I was a child. When I chose to specialize in optometry, I planned to work with all ages. Then my daughter was born premature during my second year of optometry school. I saw the quality of care she received and how much each provider cared about the kids. The experience solidified my desire to work with children and a make a difference in their lives.
When I'm not helping patients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. We love sports and outdoor activities, and traveling to see our extended family all over the United States. I’m also starting to learn Spanish, with the goal of becoming fluent, so I can better serve our patients. I hope to one day work in a Spanish-speaking clinic and go on mission trips to serve communities outside the U.S.
