Hello, and welcome to my Web page. My name is Cecilia and I'm happy to have the opportunity to introduce myself to those of you in need of vision care.
I’m a Southern California native—the furthest I’ve ever moved was from the San Gabriel Valley to the South Bay. I got interested in eyes and vision early when I realized I was waving to strangers and bumping into poles. That last part may have just been because I was uncoordinated, but my vision was indeed bad and I did not realize just how bad it was until my first visit to the optometrist. When I put on my first pair of glasses I was able to see leaves on trees! That left an impression on me and ingrained in me the desire to help those in similar situations. I find it very gratifying to help people with their sight.
Working at a smaller clinic allows me the opportunity to communicate more effectively and directly with staff. I enjoy the camaraderie that this environment provides.
Running after my two toddlers gives me a little cardio and strength workout and hones my reflexes (don't touch that burner!). I also try to do a little jogging and attend an exercise class at the YMCA on the weekends.
