I like ophthalmology because of the impact this specialty has on people’s lives. Being able to see and maintaining or regaining sight is so important for people, to be able to help them makes me very happy. Working with children, particularly, is so rewarding in that regard.

I get the chance to do what I like, pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric oculogenetics, in one of the top clinics in the world. Being in this department is like being part of a family. Everybody is supportive of one another and the whole team is focused on excellence in patient care which makes the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics such a great place to work.
