She then continued her intensive training with residency at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, where she mastered the latest ophthalmic surgical techniques.

“I love what I do as an ophthalmologist. I enjoy doing things right, and embrace the challenge to continually improve my technique, reduce the risk to patients, and obtain the best results. It brightens my day to see the joy and excitement in my patients’ eyes after their vision is properly restored.”
