Greatest accomplishment is being able to give back to the community and joining the Army as an optometrist. Every year I volunteer for mission trips with Onesight. In 2017, I went to Tanzania and in 2019 I went to India. Both times we were able to serve over 3,500 patients and provide glasses and eye examinations to patients who are less fortunate. Nothing feels better than being able to serve the underserved and also take care of our military men and women that serve and protect our country.
I chose SCO because I knew it was one of the most prestigious optometry schools where I would get the best education, and I was right. I felt so confident after graduating that I received the best education to take care of my patients.
My favorite memory was making the Justin Timberlake dance video for incoming students because I love to dance! Also, the talent shows were my absolute favorite.
