What personal history helped you become a better eye doctor?
“I knew I wanted to be a doctor since I was in the second grade. Learning about science, and medicine especially, had always been a real love of mine. Now, seeing how I truly impact lives, I know I made the right decision.”
What types of hobbies do you enjoy?
“Getting outside the clinic I work in and being outdoors serving others I where I find my real passion. Active in my church, I found great joy in my mission to Argentina for 2-years. I went so far as to learn Spanish so I could engage more with the community. I’m excited about discovering new ways to get involved in the communities where I practice medicine.”
