Why did you choose optometry as your profession?
I chose to go to optometry school because I wanted to work in health care and
also live a balanced lifestyle. Optometry provides the opportunity to help a wide

What do you want your patients to know about your approach to care?
My approach to the care I deliver to my patients is wholistic. I was taught that
we should strive to achieve Clear, Comfortable Binocular Vision to all patients.
Clear, balanced vision allows us to feel in sync with our world. The visual
system is part of the whole body, and often times poor or uncomfortable vision
is a symptom of systemic issues. Not only do I consider it my duty to give a
patient 20/20 vision, but also to advise them on potential health problems that
may require care beyond that which our office delivers.
