I was blessed to attend and attain my degree of Doctor of Optometry from the University of California, Berkeley.
I became an Optometrist so that I may provide the caring and personalized Optometric services that our unique, and often under-served, population of Ventura County deserves. Clinicas del Camino Real allows me to satisfy my personal and professional goals. It has been truly gratifying to serve our patients over the past years.
