I was raised in Anaheim California, at the age of 16, I decided I wanted to pursue my career in optometry. I worked for an optometrist while going to California State University, Fullerton. I graduated with a B.A in Chemistry. I obtained my Doctorate in Optometry from Illinois College of Optometry, the oldest optometry college in the country.
With over 35 years of experience in optometry, I opened my practice in 1990. I enjoy participating in community services and caring for those in need including VOSH and the Illumination Foundation. I'm a member of the American Optometric Association, California Optometric Association and a Member and past president of the Rio Hondo Optometric Association and have served on various professional boards.
I'm married with two children. In my spare time, I enjoy riding my road and mountain bike, working out, going to concerts and spending time with family and friends.
