I practiced optometry for 30 years before joining the admin team here at MBKU. Nobody loves this profession more than I do. It has provided me with community, relationships, work-life balance allowing me to raise a family, mental stimulation, but above all, a true calling where I enjoyed the responsibility of striving to be worthy of my patients’ trust, the faith they put in me. Yes, optometry for me has provided “good work” and a “good life,” and thus I am pleased to present this article featuring young optometrists who are just getting started in their careers.
Featured in is this article from ASCO’s blog are three of SCCO’s very own grads: two from the Class of 2014, Stephen Andersen, O.D. and Brian Park, O.D., and one from the Class of 2013, Rachel Lin, O.D., M.S., F.A.A.O.

ASCO’s Latest Blog Article: Optometry: Good Work, Good Life
When it comes to being a great career choice, optometry always makes the list.
Literally. A variety of outlets, including the Washington Post, Kiplinger and CNN Money, routinely rank optometry with other vocations they deem, for example, “top industries for women entrepreneurs” or “best careers.” A big reason optometry gets noticed in this way is the satisfying work/life balance it can provide relative to other professions.
