About Me

I have been part of the Boynton Health excellent Eye Clinic team since 1994. Boynton has been, and continues to be, a great place to work—where patient needs are always considered first. Here I enjoy working with the students, staff and faculty of the University of Minnesota. It is truly a pleasure and an honor to work with such a diverse and intelligent patient population. I enjoy primary care optometry, treatment of ocular disease, managing ocular manifestations of systemic disease, urgent care services, and contact lens fitting.
