I’m thrilled to be a part of the Vision Loft team! I grew up in Raleigh, NC and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I graduated with a B.S. in Biology and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I then ventured to Boston for my optometric education at New England College of Optometry. While enduring four incredibly cold winters, I gained invaluable clinical experience through a variety of externships at Northampton V.A. Hospital, the New England Eye Institute, Boston Medical Center, and several community health centers. In addition, I was privileged to be a part of Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity and travel to Nicaragua one spring to provide eye care for underserved communities there.
After graduation, I returned to the Triangle area and worked in a private practice setting in Durham, NC. My husband Stuart and I moved to Charlotte in the fall of 2011 when he joined a law firm here. We are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters, Libby and Georgia, who keep us laughing and running around full speed most days! We are active members of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, and enjoy getting to know other families with young children there. My husband and I love to travel, and some of our favorite trips include our honeymoon to Costa Rica, seeing Machu Picchu in Peru, and backpacking in Alaska. We also enjoy hiking in the North Carolina mountains, which are a little closer to home!
I would love to hear about your adventures when you visit the office! I look forward to meeting you.
