Biographical narrative

I am currently appointed as an Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University College of Optometry. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology (2010) from Kennesaw State University. Following my undergraduate studies, I earned a Doctor of Optometry (2014), Masters in Vision Science (2016), and Doctor of Philosophy in Vision Science (2021) from The Ohio State University. While completing my Masters degree, I completed an Advanced Practice Fellowship which allowed me to focus my clinical care and skills on pediatrics, binocular vision disorders, vision therapy, and neuro-rehabilition while also teaching as a clinical instructor and completing the research required for my degree. During my PhD training, I served as a clinical instructor in The Ohio State University College of Optometry.


My primary reserach focus is in refractive error development and emmetropization in infants. Specifically, I am learning if early refractive correction can enhance the emmetropization process in highly farsighted infants. I am also involved with research projects intermittent exotropia, amblyopia, myopia control, visual sequelae after acquired brain injuries, and accommodation. I am a liscenced optometrist and focus most of my clinical care in pediatrics, binocular vision disorders, and vision therapy and currently attend in the Binocular Vision and Pediatric Vision Services Clinic. I am an investigator for the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG) which is a collaborative group of academic optometrists, orthoptists, and ophthalmologists dedicated to the clinical research of eye diseases affecting children. I am an active member in the American Academy of Optometry, American Optometric Association, and the Ohio Optometric Association.
