"My goal is to partner with my patients in their eye care so they can enjoy high quality and comfortable vision throughout their lifetime."
I believe in providing compassionate, preventative, and evidence-based care. I love helping people understand their eyes and vision so they can be proactive in reducing their risk of vision loss. My goal is to partner with my patients in their eye care so they can enjoy high quality and comfortable vision for their lifetime.
I chose optometry because I developed an interest in eyes and vision after visiting my family optometrist for many years growing up. I thought it would be rewarding to establish relationships with people over time as I did with my optometrist.
I pursued a residency in low vision and vision rehabilitation during optometry school because I became interested in the pathophysiology of eye disease and how that process impacts an individual’s visual experience. I am also drawn to the collaborative approach required for vision rehabilitation and enjoy working with other professionals toward the common goal of helping people overcome vision loss.
Residency trained in low vision and vision rehabilitation
Interest and passion for binocular vision, vision-related headache and migraine, pediatrics
You can find me outdoors on my days off! I enjoy hiking, backpacking trips, and jogging. I’m working on improving my yoga, skiing, and climbing technique and recently started a woodworking class.
Why The Everett Clinic?
The Everett Clinic offers comprehensive, integrated care from compassionate and dedicated professionals. Patients have access not only to primary health care services but also nutritional counseling, emotional support, social work services, urgent care, and other specialty services. Providers can easily communicate with each other and coordinate referrals, which alleviates stress and anxiety for both patients and providers. It is impossible to practice optometry without consideration for all aspects of health, so I appreciate the opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary setting.
