I was born and bred in Franklin Park, Illinois. I graduated from West Leyden High School in Northlake and attended Triton College in River Grove for a short time. At that time, I came across an opportunity to work in the optometry field. I’m glad to be part of our patients’ eye care and I’ve also learned the importance of annual eye exams, whether or not you wear glasses or contacts. It’s been a great learning experience. I have worked in optometry for two years. I enjoy spending time with my family outside of work.
