She began a successful medical career after the state’s Florida Society of Ophthalmology named her Young Ophthalmologist of the Year “for demonstrating leadership, service, competence, and devotion to the highest ethical and professional standards.” She was then asked to serve as Board Member then President of the FSO, the governing body for all ophthalmologists in the state of Florida.
