About me

Hello. I'm from the Midwest and went into optometry because I became interested in how the eyes work after my grandfather developed cataracts and needed cataract surgery.

Biography

I moved to California to attend UC Berkeley, but I decided to call Los Angeles home because I enjoyed the warm weather and the ocean. I enjoy learning other languages and speak Spanish, Italian, French, and Portuguese, among others, and I have extensively traveled on 7 continents. I believe in using my abilities to help those less fortunate, which is why I do medical missions both here and overseas. Since 90% of the world’s population does not have access to eye doctors, I travel to many developing countries to do humanitarian work. My recent medical missions include Nepal, the Philippines, Jamaica, Peru, and Mexico. Because Jamaica has one of the world's highest rates of glaucoma, I go there annually to diagnose and treat glaucoma. In addition, I help organize health clinics to help the homeless and impoverished in Los Angeles's Skid Row.

About my practice

My philosophy of care is to know about members so that I can fully understand their vision needs for their work, home life, recreational activities, school, and more. In addition to prescribing glasses and treating glaucoma, I have been fitting both cosmetic contact lenses and specialty contact lenses for many years.

How I thrive

To stay fit, I run with my rescue dog, and this keeps us both fit and healthy. In my free time, I play musical instruments, study languages, travel overseas, and do humanitarian work.
