Why did you make UMSL Optometry Home?

I made UMSL my home 2 different times, once as a student and as faculty. I am here as faculty because of the reasons I chose UMSL as student — IT IS a FAMILY! We care for each other, make sure that each other succeed, and give our support to one other in good and bad times.

Why should someone choose UMSL Optometry?

You will have a wonderful experience and be given the support to succeed. Clinically, you will be top notch! There is no better place!
