Aside from educational and work experience, Dr. S has a myriad of other interests. One could say she is multi-talented. She is an avid artist and designer for over twenty years and has received numerous awards for painting, sculpting and creating works of art. Her interests in design and innovation led to the creation and publication of her first eyewear patent in 2013 while still in Optometry School. The full document of Dr. S' invention can be read here. Her desire to improve the quality of people's lives led her to designing quality over-the-counter eyewear products. She is particularly interested in the harmful effects of blue-light rays that are emitted from digital devices that surround us every day.
