" I am so grateful for my career choice in optometry. I thoroughly enjoy connecting with each of my patients. Optometry is a unique profession in which we have so much knowledge to share with our patients, but yet we are continuously learning every day.

Having lived in the Northeast, the Midwest and the west coast I am excited to settle down in the beautiful state of Washington. I am thrilled to join this practice and this community. "
