If you weren't a health care provider, what would you be? A professional hockey player.
Why did you become a provider? I am interested in healthcare and helping people. In anatomy class I was fascinated by the intricate structure of the human eye. Later I shadowed an Optometrist and enjoyed the patient interactions.
What is something you have learned from your patients? My patients have taught me the importance of taking the time to listen to them and answer their questions in a professional, respectful manner.
