On my first day of college, I met Dr. John Shive, the head of the physics department. He became my mentor and suggested that I pursue an optometry degree because of my interest in studying optics. The rest is history.

Finding the correct lens for a patient can be more difficult than many people might expect. I enjoy the challenge of having a patient who is difficult to fit and, after working together with the patient, finding a lens that exceeds their expectations. They tell me this is the first time they have excellent vision, as well as comfort.
Disposable and daily contact lenses have made wearing contact lenses so much safer and more comfortable. Additionally, the FDA approval of the orthokeratology (ortho-K) lens has had such a positive impact on the lives of many adults and children who have progressive myopia.
Because so many children are myopic — and the numbers continue to go up — I believe continued research will lead doctors to find ways to slow down or stop myopic progression without the use of contact lenses or spectacles.
I love tennis, and I like to play doubles. Gardening and a good murder mystery are other ways I use my free time.
