What do you love about the Eye Care Field? "I love the field of eye care because it allows me to help people in many different ways. It is extremely rewarding because I work with a great team that helps make sure that patients have healthy eyes and are able to see clearly after their visit. Another great aspect of working in the field of optometry is being able to assist a patient in picking the perfect pair of glasses. Both great eye health and confidence can make the biggest difference in someone's life!"
FAVORITE PART OF THE WORK DAY: My favorite part of the work day is having the opportunity to interact with patients and to help them with their eye care needs. Interacting with patients helps me better understand how I can help them, while also creating a fun and friendly environment in the office!
LITTLE KNOWN FACTS: Aside from optometry, my other passion includes music! I play the piano, guitar, ukulele, and love to sing. I used to sing with a competitive choir and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I love all genres of music and I am always singing around the house. I have composed several original pieces on the piano and have been playing since a very young age. I can play a tune on the piano just by hearing it.
ONE THING THAT CAN INSTANTLY MAKE YOUR DAY BETTER: Learning something new.
