Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an optometrist who works in the comprehensive clinic at Duke Eye Center. In my practice I enjoy providing comprehensive eye care which includes screening for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. I also provide post-operative care for those undergoing cataract surgery and contact lens evaluations. I am passionate about promoting eye health and educating my patients on the importance of taking care of their eyes and in turn their overall health. I enjoy sharing information on how improving overall health will influence and keep the visual system healthy. I have always been interested in the healthcare field and decided to become an optometrist after realizing the impact we can have on the lives of our patients through improving vision. For me, there is no greater feeling than when a patient shares with me how our practice improved the quality of their life. In my free time I enjoy reading, movies, and working out at my local CrossFit gym.
