I grew up in a small Midwest town, Wilber Nebraska, population 1200. I attended Wilber Clatonia Public School. I was active in sports, band, FFA, raising hogs as my project. I am also a member of the Wilber Clatonia Czech Marching Band. We gather yearly to play Polka music for the town's yearly Czech Festival. I graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1975 with a BS in Zoology and a teaching certificate. I then graduated from Southern College of Optometry in 1980. While attending SCO, I was awarded a Navy Scholarship, thus my eight years in the US Navy. I had the opportunity to work at the Navajo reservation, Ft. Defiance, AZ, treating diseases others only read about in books. Also being brought into the Navajo and Hopi culture was a wonderful and earth grounding experience. My time in the US Navy was spent doing eye examinations and training resident Ophthalmologist's in the art of a proper eye examination, After the Navy, I returned to Omaha Nebraska working in a group practice gaining an insight to the business side of a practice. In 1991 I returned to Jacksonville Florida to open, The EYE Doctor. For me, its been a rewarding and enjoyable profession,
