Why I'm an Optometrist
During my junior year of high school, my Anatomy and Physiology class held a career day, where a visiting Optometrist shared why he loved being an eye doctor. He had so much joy, kindness and passion when he spoke about his career; which instantly drew me in. I shadowed a few different Optometrists, and instantly knew this is what I wanted to do with my life. Having the ability to work alongside other respected colleagues in a group setting has been a long term dream of mine.
Forming relationships is my absolute favorite part of being an Optometrist. I strive to always be a friend as well as an Eye Doctor. Getting to know my patients on a personal level and sharing in the joys of their lives year after year is so rewarding.
