I was born and raised in Chicago and then moved to the suburbs for middle school. I am currently attending Elmhurst College for a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. I decided to work in an optometry practice because I want to gain experience and prepare myself for optometry school. I have worked as an optician for almost a year now. I plan on attending optometry school to continue my journey in this field, hoping to become a doctor and specialize in pediatrics.
Outside of work I like photography and being outdoors. I am in a national sorority, Sigma Lambda Gamma, where I do fundraising and volunteer activities with my sorority sisters in our surrounding communities. For example, I help with the TRIO programs that focus on helping individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds and also host multiple fundraising and educational campaigns for breast cancer awareness. My family loves the outdoors, trying new foods and are very friendly individuals!
