What’s your Why?
“I have wanted to be an eye doctor since junior high because I get to spend time with patients and help them in many different ways. The optometry profession goes far beyond glasses and contacts. I can impact someone’s life by prescribing a pair of glasses, but also in many other ways as well. I love the patient relationships I get to form.”
