She sums up her passion for teaching at Pacific: "Teaching at the College of Optometry gives me the opportunity to interact with some of the most intelligent people in our community – both doctors and students. It seems I learn something new everyday. Interacting with the students really keeps you on your toes. They expect a lot and this pushes you to become more knowledgeable and a better optometrist."
