Meet the Optometrist

I’ve been practicing optometry for 20 years. My family and I have lived in Tacoma for over a decade. Tacoma is a vibrant and diverse community that we enjoy being a part of.

After finishing college I earned my Doctorate degree in Optometry and completed a residency. I am one of only a few optometrists in Tacoma who have earned fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry. I am the only doctor in Tacoma board certified in medical optometry.

In 2014 I was honored to be nominated to be “ VA optometrist of the year” by my colleagues in the Armed Forces Optometric Society (AFOS). Before moving to Tacoma I was a faculty/staff member at many medical schools (University of Colorado, University of Miami, University of Auckland in New Zealand). I also had the opportunity to lecture around the world.

I provide mobile eye care on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This enables me to care for patients throughout Western Washington that are unable to get care on their own.
