Hello! I’m Pearl. I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and I graduated from the Doctor of Optometry Program at Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, OR.
My clinical experiences have allowed me to work in many clinical settings including a veterans hospital, private practice, surgical co-management and two global volunteer trips to rural areas of Belize and Nicaragua. I enjoy all aspects of optometry but I have a true passion for ocular surface disease and dry eye management.
I’m so grateful to live in the beautiful province of Alberta and spend a lot of my spare time exploring the beautiful outdoors, you can always find me trying to summit a mountain or hiking to breathtaking waterfalls. In the city you’ll find me enjoying the vibrant food scene or curling up and reading a good book.
