Do we have a sense more valuable than our sense of sight? Take a minute to think about that. Experts say that approximately 80% of the information that reaches our brains comes from our eyes! So when deciding how I wanted to spend the rest of my career, the decision was rather simple. I knew I wanted to be a doctor since it was in my nature to help. Enhancing lives, two eyes at a time was what made the most sense to me. That is what brought me here, excited to meet you as your future optometrist! I started my schooling at the University of Alberta and Grant MacEwan where I was working towards a major in biology and a minor in psychology. After being accepted to several optometry programs I moved onto the Illinois College of Optometry in the “Windy City” of Chicago. I graduated in 2018 and almost immediately moved back to Edmonton to start treating patients in the city I grew up in. I have a special interest in pediatric optometry including vision therapy, and myopia control. I have great enjoyment working with dry eyes, geriatrics, and practicing family optometry in general. My favorite thing about working in Optometry is building relationships with people. When I am not working I spend time with family, and friends. I also enjoy watching and playing all sports especially hockey.
