“The richness of change I have seen in this industry has given me a unique perspective on eye health.”
Though I've worked in the optical business for over 35 years, and people now ask me about retiring, I feel that I am hitting my stride as an optician. The richness of change I have seen in this industry has given me a unique perspective, not only on people and eye health, but fashion and function in eyewear as well.

I started working after being a drama major at the University of Washington in the early 1970s. My father encouraged me to learn a trade instead of chasing after audition. I became a board-certified licensed optician in 1989.
