Describe your career path from graduation to where you are today

Upon graduation, I hustled! I worked 3 or 4 optometry jobs so I could earn as much as possible to start paying down my loans.  I worked in retail optometry, ophthalmology and a private optometric practice at the same time making myself available for fill-in work wherever and whenever I could.  In 1995 I started my own practice which I worked hard to grow by “pounding the pavement” and learning marketing.  We moved from a small facility in 1999 to a more visible building and have expanded from 1000 square feet to 2500 square feet and finally in October 2014 to our state of the art facility of 5000 square feet.
