“I’ve always known that I wanted to be a health care provider. I worked as an ophthalmic technician just out of college and was blessed to work with some very caring optometrists that helped guide me into this field. I couldn’t be happier about this decision to become an eye doctor. I love that I can be part of the community and build lasting relationships with my patients. I enjoy seeing the smiles on children’s faces and helping those with eye health needs. I strive to provide each patient with high quality eye care and a lifetime of happy, healthy eyes.”
