I  moved to  Little Rock  in 2014, and was subsequently offered a  position  at  Little  Rock  Eye Clinic West  in  2014, due  to  two doctor’s retiring.

I am very glad to have been offered this position and am currently working at  building my patient base, fitting specialty contact lenses and formulating unique  glasses prescriptions.

In addition to my profession I am an extremely avid bicyclist, kayaker and hiker. I also do volunteer work at my church, St. Luke’s Episcopal and through the three bicycling clubs to which I belong.
