I grew up in Marion, Iowa and graduated from Marion High School, class of 1982. Go MHS! I attended the University of Iowa and earned an undergraduate degree in Business. Having always wanted to be in healthcare, and needing glasses for the first time at age 23, I decided to enter Optometry School. I loved Optometry School and graduated with honors, as Valedictorian in 1995 from Illinois College of Optometry.
My dream vacation would be Maine or Colorado. Ideally, a remote cabin in the mountains, where I could hike, bike or ski. I love a good snow storm, a great book, and hot soup. My favorite ice cream is Heyn’s Cappuccino or any peanut butter chocolate flavor.
I love that we have created a medical based eyecare clinic that provides quality, stylish, unique eyewear! I want the world to see me as honest, fair, kind, professional, and empathetic.
