She joined the eye care clinic in March 2013 as an Ophthalmic Assistant, was promoted to Optician Trainee in 2014, and became a Certified Optician through the American Board of Opticianry in 2015.

She graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with an associate degree in Business Administration.

Recent examples of her selflessness include driving a patient to an eye specialist during an emergency and organizing a fundraiser for a friend with unexpected health concerns. She epitomizes our mission to improve lives," affirms Sarah Mitchell, North Oaks Physician Group Regional Director.
