I was raised in South Dennis, Cape Cod, Massachusetts and graduated from Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School. When I was younger I played recreational soccer, tennis and in high school I ran on the track team. Even though I don’t watch a lot of sports, with my parents being from the Boston area, I naturally have to root for the Bruins, Celtics, Patriots and Red Sox. When I was very young my parents moved us to Naples, FL for 2 years, then moved back to Cape Cod. The memories of going to the beach, constant warmth, and all the friends I made always stuck in my mind.

In 2010, I decided it was the right time to move to Florida and landed in Venice. I started at State College of Florida to begin studying for the Physical Therapist Assistant program. Just a couple years later I met my fiancé. We recently bought our first house together and jumped right in to remodeling it!

Before getting into the eye care field I had always worked in retail but had a high interest in health care. When I started with Dr. Radish in November, his office combined the 2 things I love best, providing personalized service to patients and the opportunity for ever-growing knowledge. He and the staff at Deep Creek Eye Care Port Charlotte have really spiked my interest in eye care and eye health. So much so that I will be enrolling in the Opticianry program at Edison State College to further my knowledge and understanding of the eye.

When I’m not working at Deep Creek Eye Care I enjoy baking, reading, gardening, and doing anything to keep moving!
