NYSOA AUXILIARY AWARD for Outstanding Service to the Class of 2023

What does receiving this award or scholarship mean to you?
I'm honored to be recognized with this award. I have worked hard over the past four years to help all those in my class find success with weekly reminder emails and by being a resource they could come to with any questions or concerns. I look forward to continuing to work with organized optometry in the future!

What are your plans following graduation?
I will be completing my residency in Primary Care and Ocular Disease at the VA Hudson Valley Healthcare System

What advice would you give incoming or prospective optometry students?
Get involved! Don't be afraid to put yourself out there on something that seems unfamiliar - you may find you really love it! Optometry has a great community to support you.
