'Changing Lives, Through Eye Care'




It is a real joy for me to build relationships with my patients, of all ages and I feel privileged to be entrusted with their vision care.

My passion for eye care began while volunteering in Central America. Improving sight for people who do not have access to eye care has been the most rewarding experience of my life. While in Optometry school I was the founder and President of VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity), an organization that connects Optometry students with international eye care missions. I have had the opportunity to participate and lead eye care teams to a variety of countries over the past 10 years. I have volunteered in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Jamaica and Mexico. I am now pursuing my Master's degree at Johns Hopkins in the study of Public Health, specializing in International Health Care. This degree will better able me to establish sustainable eye care solutions in the developing world. My hope is to continue bridging the gap of eye care services to those in need through our buy one, give one program at Airdrie Family Eye Doctors. With each full pair of glasses that are purchased at our clinic, we will be donating one pair of new glasses to someone in need.

In addition to International eye care, I have a special interest in pediatric vision care. I am a new Mom to a baby girl and I could not be more dedicated to caring for our little ones' eyes. It is imperative that all kids get thorough eye exams starting at a very early age and throughout their childhood, to ensure they have great vision development as they grow.

I am passionate about providing exceptional eye care in a comfortable and personalized setting and invite you to come experience our clinic and see what we can offer you and your family.
