Author name: Keylee

I am enjoying the life of an optometry student on an island. I am a Trustee for the AOSA and enjoy helping students learn more about the opportunities to get involved and give back that are with in our profession. I hope to after school do a residency maybe in ocular disease or vision therapy/rehabilitation and then eventually own my own practice. In the meantime I enjoy helping others learning about our great profession and I look forward to the rewarding future it has to hold. Find Keylee on Google+.
