Why did you become a optometrist?
I became an optometrist because I've always had an interest in helping others. I also did not have any form of eye care as a child. My first eye exam was at age 14, thinking that blurry distance vision was normal for a teenager. I then understood what a difference an eye doctor can make in one's life. My vision became worse every year and I needed access to eye care, glasses, and contact lenses. There were not many answers for a struggling teen and college kid who could not afford the care I needed. I was driven to finish school and become an eye doctor so i can help those in need, like myself.
Interesting Facts

I've been married for 25 years to Roxann, we have 4 children, 3 boys, one girl. We own a dog, Winston. I was born in Southern California and I have two younger sisters. We all live in Colorado Springs, along with my mom. I enjoy all things music and all sports. Tennis & Guitar are my favorite.

Why did you become a optometrist?
I had word glasses since the 4th grade, but it never occurred to me that "I" would be an optometrist. After my 3 children were all in school I was looking for something to fill my time and considered becoming an optometry technician for the Air Force Reserve. My husband mentioned optometry school and the rest is history. I fell in love with eyes and couldn't be happier with the path I chose.
Interesting Facts

I grew up in OK and married my husband of 25 years shortly after graduating high school. My husband served 23 years in the Air Force which took us all over the US before settling in Colorado. I have two married sons who serve in the military and one daughter who is attending college at the University of New Mexico. i enjoy spending time with friends & family, cooking and watching movies. My family loves the beach and getting away to sand and sun as often as possible.
