I was born and raised in Orange County, and have been working in the optical field since 2002. I began as a part-time Optometric Assistant, while completing my education, and did not realize then how much it would influence my future career goals. I graduated from California State University Long Beach with a bachelors degree in Education and a concentration in Human/Child Development, and since then, have become a certified Optician by the American Board of Opticianry. Here at La Paz Optometric Center, I have the priviledge of sharing my knowledge with patients to help them make the best informed decisions regarding their eye care needs. In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my husband and crafting projects with my nieces and nephew.
