About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy for the opportunity to tell you about my life and my practice. I feel very fortunate to work in optometry at the Moreno Valley Heacock Medical Offices because of my wonderful colleagues and clinical staff, and I look forward to working with you to care for your eye health.

Biography

I was born in Chicago and raised in suburban Oak Park, Illinois. Following college, I spent four years in the Army. I went to optometry school in Chicago returned to the military as a clinical optometrist, serving in Germany, Korea, and the United States. Later, I obtained a master's degree in physiological optics from Indiana University. I was assigned to the Army Aeromedical Research Lab and focused on night-vision devices and laser-protective eyewear. I taught classes in the United States, Germany, and Canada, and presented a paper at a NATO conference in London. From research, I became a project manager developing medical products including laser-protective eyewear. Professionally, I became a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. Following military service, I returned to clinical optometry in both private optometry and group ophthalmology practices. In 1998, I joined Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

As the lead optometrist, I am proud of the quality and dedication of my fellow optometrists and clinic staff. With our emphasis on providing members with comprehensive eye care, we work closely with the Ophthalmology Department to provide specialized diagnostic testing and with a great group of ophthalmologists who provide high-quality, advanced eye care when needed. In addition to meeting members’ vision needs, I am involved with customization of the electronic medical record for optometry and ophthalmology. When the electronic medical record was first introduced, it did not include a capability to transfer data from our automated instruments into the medical records. I volunteered my time to write a program to accomplish this task. In recognition, I was honored by being selected Optometrist of the Year and later received a leadership award from the Riverside Medical Center.

How I thrive

I believe in the Kaiser Permanente philosophy of healthy living. I do this by eating nutritious foods and exercising frequently. My favorite activities are hiking, camping, and kayaking. However, I cannot get outdoors as often as I would like, so I substitute the treadmill. Other exercise opportunities are bike riding and museum/theme park treks with my granddaughter.
