Growing up in the Millwoods community she saw her local optometrist annually and quickly gravitated to the profession. Seeing optometry as an opportunity to deliver quality and patient centered care is one of the most enjoyable aspects of her profession.

Some of her favorite past times are spending time with friends and family along with running.
Optometry has given me the unique opportunity to connect with others in a deep and meaningful way. I never fail to see myself in the patient across from me and if we are able to help every individual across from us in the smallest of ways, we can deem each day at work a successful one.
