"As a young child, the eye doctor was my favorite doctor. There were so many fun things to see and try and in the end, I could see better. In high school and into college I worked as an ophthalmic technician and I came to see all the wonderful things you could do as an ophthalmologist. I knew it was the career for me. I decided to specialize in Pediatrics because I loved working with children and wanted to be an advocate for them. It has become so much more than I could have ever dreamed of. During my career, I continued to be both Comprehensive as well as Pediatric because my relationships with my patients are of the utmost important part of my job. I want to help them and be there with them through all the important parts of their life. From birth and through the school years, young adulthood into middle age, and then their retirement years. Providing the tools they need and getting to see how my work has benefited them in their everyday life continues to be the “why” I choose to do this."
