After 12 years of practicing in Seattle, I had the fortunate opportunity to move to Alaska. Its people, beauty, wilderness and adventure makes me proud to call Alaska home. I graduated from the University of Washington and continued my education at Pacific University College of Optometry, graduating with honors in 2000. I am past president of the King County Society of the Optometic Physicians of Washington, member of Alaska Optometric Association, American Optometric Association, College of Optometrists in Vision Development, Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, and the Optometric Extension Program. I am currently working towards a Fellowship in the specialty areas of Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation and Vision Therapy. I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 children as well as serving the Anchorage community; Go Red for Women Alaska Chapter-American Heart Association, Alaska Brain Injury Network.
