PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

I was born in Moscow, Russia. In 2008, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Optometry from Bar-Ilan University in Tel-Aviv, Israel and practiced Optometry in central Israel until 2012. I moved to Massachusetts in 2012 to continue my education at the New England College of Optometry in Boston.

In 2014, I received a Doctor of Optometry degree and a Good-lite award for clinical and academic achievements in Pediatric Optometry. In 2015, I completed a Pediatric Residency program at the New England College of Optometry. During my Residency I was trained by the Pediatric Ophthalmology and Optometry specialists at Tufts Medical Center, Boston Medical Center, Dimock Community Health center and Perkins School for the Blind and did my research at Boston Children’s Hospital. I provide comprehensive and urgent care for pediatric patients including vision therapy, contact lens fitting, and functional vision examinations. I also enjoy teaching students. I am a member of Massachusetts Association of Optometry, American Optometric Association and American Academy of Optometry. I currently have a license to practice in Massachusetts and Israel. I speak English, Russian and Hebrew.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, shows and concerts with my family and friends.
