Dr. Horn is definitely a local guy with optometric blood! He was raised in Forest Grove, Ore., and his brother (Russell) and sister-in-law (Jacqueline) are both optometrists. He enjoys spending time with his family, golf, soccer, cheering for the Timbers and travel.
What does he enjoy most about teaching at the College of Optometry?
"There is so much that I enjoy. For me it is the combination of working with wonderful patients, an excellent staff, remarkable faculty and wonderful students. This combination motivates me to be the best educator and optometrist I can. More importantly, it makes my job FUN. I truly enjoy working with everyone to make Pacific University a leader in the field of optometry."
