Why did you choose optometry as your profession?
I have had glasses since fifth grade. My high school guidance counselor thought I would be a good O.D. and had me shadow his twin brother who was a local O.D. I always knew I wanted to be in the medical field and optometry seemed like a good fit.
What do you want your patients to know about your approach to care?
I strive to treat each and every patient as though they are a family member—the best advice I ever received in optometry school from a very wise professor.
