I joined Cornerstone Jamaica because of my love for providing children’s eye care through the See Better. Learn Better. program, as well as my love for the country of Jamaica itself. The opportunity to serve these kiddos is something really special, and something I’ve loved being a part of. I am originally from a small town in Northwest Ohio, and attended The Ohio State University for my undergraduate and optometry school education. I was able to complete my residency training through Indiana University with Dr. Katie Connolly. I currently practice in Columbus, OH in a private practice, and I’m also a clinical instructor at The Ohio State University College of Optometry. My favorite thing about Jamaica is the welcoming nature of everyone. From the children receiving eye care, to the people welcoming us where we’ll be staying for our trip, to the teachers and volunteers that help us organize and carry out our plans each day. Everyone is such a pleasure to be around and work with, which makes going to Jamaica an even more pleasant and rewarding experience!
