Growing up with a mother who was a physician, I always knew I wanted to be part of a profession that made a positive difference in people's lives. I realized my calling was optometry as I dealt with my grandfather who suffered from severe glaucoma. The debilitating condition limited his ability to see his children and grandchildren's accomplishment and milestones. Now as an optometrist I strive for early detection of glaucoma to minimize the risk of blindness in my patients, while providing the best patient care possible. It is gratifying to know that I am helping my patient's experience life a little clearer.
