What do you love about the Eye Care Field? Mix of science, art and fashion. 'I don't wear makeup, I wear glasses!' And now learning about contact lenses and the different tools and methods to correct vision for patients with unique ocular anatomy.
FAVORITE PART OF THE WORK DAY: Helping patients find the perfect pair of glasses that puts a smile on their face as soon as they try them on. Sci-Fi nerd fo' life! Live long and prosper!
LITTLE KNOWN FACTS: I have been to three Summer Olympics and Opening Ceremonies. There is something indescribable being surrounded by a hundred thousand humans from all over the globe coming together to celebrate the feats the human body is capable of. Feeling the heat from the Olympic cauldron as it rose through the stands in Australia and seeing Muhammad Ali light the cauldron in Atlanta, unforgettable.
ONE THING THAT CAN INSTANTLY MAKE YOUR DAY BETTER: Checking the chicken coop and having a nesting box full of eggs!
