"I strive to treat each patient as I would want myself or my family to be treated."
Optometry - Contact Lens
I enjoy the daily interactions with my patients and the camaraderie of my fellow co-workers. I practice preventative care and ensure that each patient receives a thorough examination and proper education about their vision. I strive to treat each patient as I would want myself or my family to be treated. Although I specialize in contact lenses, I also treat a wide variety of ocular health conditions. Working at Kaiser Permanente allows me to be part of a collaborative environment that best serves the health care needs of our patients.
I was born in California and attended University of California Berkeley School of Optometry. Shortly after graduating, I moved to Seattle and began working for this organization. My family enjoys spending time together and exploring the beautiful Northwest. My love of science led me to choose a career in health care. In the past, I have volunteered for the Millionair Club, which provides eye exams for unemployed and homeless patients in Seattle, and also participated in several health care missions in developing countries through Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity. I am currently a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry.
My family and I like to travel throughout the West Coast, Hawaii, and New Mexico. I stay energized by riding my bicycle to work and reading in my free time.
