Take a look at this Q&A with Dana Taylor Wasloski, OD.
What made you want to become an optometrist?
I was interested in a medical career and found optometry fascinating after shadowing a local optometrist. It opened my eyes to a new opportunity, as I had never been to an optometrist.
As a successful woman in the industry, what professional story or advice would you offer to other women just starting out in their careers?
Keep learning about new developments in Optometry and find an area that you would like to specialize in. I was lucky enough to practice developmental vision and vision therapy. Enjoy your patient encounters; you are making a significant difference in their lives.
When you started considering an exit strategy for your practice, what were your top priorities for a partner/the process?
I wanted to maintain a professional environment and continue to provide excellent service to our patients. Vision therapy is my specialty and it was important for me to continue to practice developmental vision and offer therapy to my patients.
How would you describe the process of becoming a Keplr Vision practice? How has your life changed? How have the lives of your staff changed?
The process has gone smoothly overall with only minor bumps along the way. I am able to focus more fully on patient care without the extra burden of administrative work. My staff appreciates the additional training from Keplr Vision with minimal change in the work environment.
