"As a pediatric optometrist, I get to do so many things that make the children happy, their parents happy, and bring a smile to my face. It may be as simple as prescribing glasses for a myopic child for the first time and his/her facial and verbal reaction when he/she can see the letters on the chart or the leaves on the trees for the first time. "

"I remember it being a very long haul with long nights and tough classes. I remember my classes were filled with incredibly smart people who actually had a real talent for medicine, but to be honest, I struggled. There were times I questioned “Am I in the right field, am I doing the right thing because I’m not quite picking it up as fast as everyone else seems to be?”

"I found audiology as an undergraduate speech-language pathology major at St. John’s University in NY. I found working with the different test equipment was more fitting to my learning style. Learning different test techniques with all the age groups as well as setting up rehabilitation plans was a truly exceptional challenge! I've never regretted my decision to choose Audiology! I also have to thank the US Navy for helping me, too!"
