How did you fall in love with your field?

I appreciated the intricacies of ophthalmic medical care and surgical care, the science, and the ability to improve the precious gift of vision for patients of all ages.

I’ve had the opportunity to train at ophthalmology programs on the Gulf Coast, East Coast, the Mid-Atlantic and the Pacific Northwest. Prior to coming to the Midwest, my family and I spent just over 10 years in the Southeast United States in clinical and surgical practice at Emory University in Uveitis and Vitreoretinal Surgery. During this time, one of my greatest joys and privileges has been training over 60 Fellows, Residents, and Medical Students who have gone on to successful academic and private practice careers.

My experiences in teaching, research and clinical care of patients have been greatly enriched by our team’s global health programs in countries in Africa including Sierra Leone, Liberia, Kenya, and Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as in Honduras, Central America previously. Clinically, I care for a range of adult and pediatric patients with uveitis, ocular inflammatory diseases, and retinal disease conditions (macular degeneration, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy).
