Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to visit this page and learn a little about me.
I went to the University of Central Florida in my hometown Orlando, FL for my undergraduate education. There I received my Bachelor’s degree in Health Science with a minor in Biology and Associate degree in Psychology.
I then moved to Southern California where I earned my Doctor of Optometry degree from Western University of Health Sciences. I am currently practicing in Orange County, CA.
My mission and passion is to educate the world on the importance of comprehensive eye exams at all ages, regardless of vision problems. I believe that education is the key to prevention and I created this platform for exactly that reason.
My internships at Western University include:
- Vision Therapy
- Neuro-Optometric Rehab
- Low Vision
- Contact Lens
My externships include:
- Pediatric, Vision Therapy and Neuro-optometric Rehab at the Eye Care Clinic
- Primary care at Focus Vision Optometry
- Ocular Disease and Low Vision at the Veteran Affairs Outpatient Clinic
- Specialty Contact Lens at Phelan Family Eye Care
I am fluent in English and Arabic and am able to do examinations in Spanish. On my free time I enjoy traveling around the world, hiking in new places, going to church and spending time with friends and family.
My favorite quote is: “The secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.” By Francis Weld Peabody
