When did you know you wanted to be an eye doctor?
“As long as I can remember I wanted to be an eye doctor. As a young child, I watched my mother, whom I very much admired, and I knew early on that following in her footsteps would be a rewarding career.”
Why choose Colorado to practice eye care?
“Simple, the outdoors. Nothing helps energize you like being out among the Rocky Mountains fly-fishing in a fresh stream. Nature really is the best medicine.”
