I worked in my private practice In Sheridan from 1979-2003, sold it and worked for W. Brent Hall at Hall Eyecare Associates in Pine Bluff from2003-2014. 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.
