How did you discover your passion for what you do?

I knew early on that I wanted a career that combined health care, leadership and entrepreneurship. Being an optometrist and practice owner has allowed me to do just that. As an optometrist, I get to help people SEE! As a business owner, I get to lead my team to achieve financial success and deliver elite patient care.


What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

Travel! I love learning and submersing myself in new places and new cultures. It helps me remember that the world is bigger than my own community. I also feel the most inspired and creative when I travel. That creativity helps me avoid burnout.


How do you continue to grow and be a lifelong learner?

Lifelong learning is vital for personal and professional growth. Opportunities to learn new things are everywhere. I personally try to grow daily through reading, podcasts, trying new hobbies and even interacting with people from industries outside my own.
