"I was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and moved to the US when I was five years old. I grew up in sunny Southern California. For Optometry school, I went to Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA where I completed my degree in 2016. Once I graduated, I married my high-school sweetheart, and soon after, we moved to a city near New Orleans, Louisiana so he can continue his medical training. I practiced for almost three years with a focus on primary care and contact lenses in Metairie, LA. Throughout my education and career, I have found that providing eye care to the underserved to be the most rewarding. I am thrilled to be part of the team at The Eye Center, where I can continue providing primary eye care services to the community, but also have the opportunity to be part of the One Sight program.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my baby girl, Alia; going on nature trails; walking our two pups, Rocky and Apollo; and enjoying good food! AlthoughLouisiana will always have a special place in our hearts, as we had many of our "firsts" memories there, we are really excited to be in Durham and can't wait to explore the area and create new memories. Any local recommendations are greatly appreciated!"
