I also provide patient care with LensCrafters at Destiny USA in Syracuse. I have filled-in for numerous optometrists in several commercial and private practice settings from Rochester to Albany, as well as in Brooklyn and Queens. As an active member of the AOA and NYSOA, I serve as District Leader for the Mohawk Valley Chapter. I also serve on the Advisory Committee for the Health Professions at Utica College and have served as Director of Professional Development at Mohawk Valley Young Professionals. My Masters research in vision science included studies of tactile alphabets designed for low vision patients. As a student at SUNY Optometry, I was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society.
