My undergraduate degree is from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I subsequently earned a MS in Physiology from the University of California - Davis and a Doctor of Optometry at the University of California, Berkeley School of Optometry. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and the Scleral Lens Education Society.
Contact Lenses are my passion and I have over 30 years of expertise in fitting specialty contact lenses, including the latest computer designed scleral lenses. I am often challenged with hard to fit cases referred to me by colleagues and it is extremely rewarding to be able to help these patients. In addition to being a founding board member of the Pacific Laser Eye Center, I enjoy co-managing LASIK candidates who are eager to eliminate contacts and glasses.
Community ophthalmology allows me to assist those less fortunate who are in need of eye care.

I have been continually active in my profession. I am the current president of the Redwood Empire Optometric Society and representative to the Bay Area Optometric Council. I have held many positions within the California Optometric Association over the past 25 years and have been a member of the American Optometric Association since 1987.
I have been interested in music all of my life. I am a drummer, percussionist and singer, performing with bands and choirs for over 40 years. I am an avid reader and also enjoy hiking, camping and being near, on, or in the water. I have lived in Sonoma County since 1991 and have 3 grown children of whom I am extremely proud.
