Why I’m interested in Optometry: Before college, I had optometry as a potential health-profession in mind because I found the field of vision to be interesting. Joining Foresight solidified my career choice! From Foresight’s informative seminars, socials, volunteering, and shadowing opportunities, I realized that optometrists were generally happy professionals satisfied with their job. Most importantly, being an optometrists allows me to be flexible with my future schedule, so I can balance my other passion of teaching.

Major: Nutritional Sciences , Physiology and Metabolism track

Where I’m from: Peoria, AZ

Favorite class: Medical Ethnobotany (IB 117)

Hobbies: I love to design and draw , make desserts like macarons and cheesecakes, and try new restaurants and recipes! In addition, shopping and watching Netflix is how I destress.

Why optometry: I’ve always been intrigued by the human body and love the idea of specializing in one specific part of the body but also being able to catch metabolic diseases such as diabetes from a simple eye exam. Being an optometrist allows me to not only meet new people everyday but also build a genuine relationship with them which is what I find the most rewarding.

I will be attending SUNY Optometry starting in Fall 2018!
