Royal Palm Beach, FL
What is your greatest professional accomplishment or patient care success story?
My greatest professional accomplishment has to be the opening of Socialite Vision. I started that dream during a business plan competition at SCO with another SCO grad, William Tantum, and made it come to life. Like the great philosopher Drake once said, I started from the bottom now I am here.
Why did you choose Southern College of Optometry to pursue your optometric education?
I choose Southern College of Optometry after a campus visit from Sunnie Ewing. She was so warm and welcoming, I said I had to check that place out. Being from Florida I wanted some of that southern hospitality and I was excited for a new adventure. When I came on the campus I was not disappointed. Seeing Dr. Dumus now Pepper, Dr. Harville, Dr. Norton, Dr. Nicks, and Dr. Heard I knew I was in good hands and they would not let me fall.
Share your best memory from your time at Southern College of Optometry:
My best and funniest memory from my time at SCO was when I poured dye on my volunteers’ shirt during Part 3 of boards on a Friday, and my roommate Andrew Brauer made funny pic of it—by Monday 8 am it was on the PowerPoint. I laughed pretty hard that day. And when I still passed boards the joke was even funnier.
