What does she enjoy most about teaching at the College of Optometry?
“I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to work with the most talented, brilliant and compassionate individuals: the students and the staff. Everyone here all has the same genuine goal: to make great optometric physicians. Every time I see a student learn a new skill or excel at patient care I feel fortunate to have been part of that transformation, no matter how small.”
