Why I became an eye doctor…
I became an eye doctor because of my love of the medical field. I really had an interest growing up in specializing in one area of the body, whether it was eyes or teeth. It was during my college days at the University of MN Duluth, where a career in Optometry presented itself. I followed it, and haven’t turned back. I love seeing many different patients every day, new and “regulars.” It’s fun to create a relationship with them over the years. There are always new innovations in the eye care world, so I am constantly learning new things. I am really glad I chose this profession!
