Hi, I will be graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Biology at UCI. I plan on pursuing a Doctor of Optometry degree because I have always had a fascination for optometry; my fascination grew into passion once I had the opportunity to be an intern here. My absolute favorite thing about being an intern is the amazing people that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Some of them are the best storytellers! From telling me about their trips around the world, giving me life advice or telling me hilarious stories about their kids, it has been a blast.

I am a bus driver for the Anteater Express shuttles at UCI
I’ve been playing the trumpet for 10 years and I had the opportunity to travel around China and perform when I was in high school.

I first became interested with optometry when I was little and had my first eye exam wondering how it is that glasses help improve one’s eye sight. With this interest combined with the great people here and the patients that come in every day, makes me excited to be here learning and to pursue a career in optometry.

I love to bake, especially brownies and cookies; and I love cooking different kinds of pastas.
I enjoy the outdoors a lot and try to go rock climbing or hiking when I can. When I was in high school, I spent two weeks backpacking in the back country of New Mexico.
I am a bus driver for Anteater Express at UCI. A cool ability we learned was how to parallel park a bus.

Andrea

Hi! My name is Andrea and I'm currently studying at the University of California Irvine aiming to get my Bachelor's degree in Biology. I've had an interest in Optometry for a while now. When I was younger, it was always a competition between my siblings and I on who would have the best vision. It turned out we all needed glasses as time went by! Working here as an intern made me realize that I love interacting and working with patients. It's amazing to see patients, who've came in with unclear vision, come out of their appointment with perfect vision.

Interesting Facts

I love going on hikes.
I like working on puzzles or reading a good book on my spare time.
I love chocolate chip cookies.... they're addicting!
