Board-Certified Ophthalmologist Santa Rosa, CA
I attended Harvard College and Yale School of Medicine. I completed my ophthalmology residency at the world-renowned Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, followed by a fellowship in Cornea, External Disease and Uveitis at the Proctor Foundation/UCSF, where I was awarded the Claes Dohlman Fellowship Award (given to one outstanding cornea fellow in the nation annually).
My special interests will be medical and surgical management of diseases of the cornea and external eye, cataract surgery, and complex cases involving the front part of the eye. This includes procedures such as corneal transplants, complex and premium cataract surgery using femtosecond laser technology, and reconstruction after trauma or previous surgeries. During my training, I was privileged to run an eye emergency room, provide refractive surgery for our armed forces in Texas, and contribute to ophthalmic care for the local population in Tenwek, Kenya. Here at ECI, I have the opportunity to continue the tradition of providing eye care to those most in need. I also serve as adjunct faculty at our local Touro University, where I treasure the chance to help educate the next generation of young physicians.
Personal Interests: My husband and I are transplants from the east coast, and have come to love the great outdoors Northern California has to offer. We enjoy everything from camping to mushroom hunting to wine tasting. He is especially excited that I can bring home Russian River Brewery after work. Currently, our main hobby is raising our kids; hopefully, over time he will allow me to revisit some old hobbies such as pottery, painting, and snowboarding!
