Kallie had an accomodative esotropia as a kid, which may have contributed to her interest in optometry. Prior to becoming the SCCO student bowl champ, she was the 2016-2017 SCCO AOSA Trustee. Her passion for the optometry profession didn’t stop after her Trustee term was over; she hopes to become even more involved with her state association upon graduation. Way to go Kallie!

Her other goals include winning the student bowl, completing a residency, and adopting a puppy.

When Kallie is not out fighting for our profession, she likes to cook, run, go to the beach, and eat M&M’s (her favorite candy).

In the meantime, she claims to be part of a rigorous student bowl training program so watch out contestants!

Keep calm and Kallie on, SCCO…Kallie has you covered at the OSB.
