I have over 30 years experience in the ophthalmology field.  I am a certified ophthalmic executive, ophthalmic technician and  scribe.  I attended Indiana University, Oakton Community College and graduated from Triton College.

I am a former site manager and evaluator for the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology for the  technician certification exam.

The scope of my experience includes the areas of general ophthalmology, refractive surgery, electrophysiology, cornea, pediatrics, oculoplastics, retina and glaucoma.  I have worked in both private and university-based settings.
