As an Account Executive and Recruiter for ETS Vision, my only priority is to match Optometry and Ophthalmology practices with the Optometrist candidates that best fit their needs. I have a large network of contacts and a vast database of candidates that I leverage in order to help Optometry and Ophthalmology practices fill associate roles, recruit compatible partners, or find Optometrists for buy-in or buy-out opportunities. If you are an Optometrist looking for your dream position, partnership or practice purchase, or if your practice is looking for an Associate, Partner or a Buyer, I’m happy to help!

I originally connected with ETS at the Virginia Tech Business Horizons career fair in September of 2020 and was given the wonderful opportunity to intern with ETS Vision in the summer of 2021. I then continued my internship into the fall with ETS OBGYN. I was able to work directly with the Account Executives in those specialties, offering my research and marketing support and learning invaluable information along the way.

I am a Virginia native, but I have also lived in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. I went to Virginia Tech where I graduated with a degree in Business Management with a concentration in Consulting and Analytics. I’ve played softball for 14 years and still play in a rec league every spring and fall, and when the weather is nice you can find me either on a hiking trail or out on a golf course with my partner, Mike. In my free time you can find me in my kitchen either cooking or baking something new, playing video games, or hanging out with my cats- Cali and Jane.
