I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, and my doctorate degree from the Southern California College of Optometry. I completed a residency in Primary Eyecare and Low Vision Rehabilitation at the VA Medical Center in Palo Alto, California. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and a member of the American Optometric Association.
I'm passionate about serving those with visual impairment and blindness and I was the Low Vision Optometrist at the VA Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona for ten years. I greatly enjoyed working with visually impaired veterans with macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, acquired/traumatic brain injury/ stroke, and other conditions that significantly affect vision. I also served on clinical faculty at the Arizona College of Optometry at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona.
I am currently in private practice as well as Kaiser Permanente in the SF Bay Area in California. I can help answer your questions regarding eye infections, dry eye, eye allergies and other eye disorders/ conditions. Of course, we can also discuss general vision care (e.g. computer vision syndrome, near/far-sightedness, nutrition), glasses, and contacts. I look forward to providing you with practical, compassionate care.
