Haley Vasilko

Dr. Vasilko always had a desire for a career in the medical field. She recalls an amazing optometrist who treated her with such kindness and care, and who would always answer her many questions when she was growing up. That experience made her want to be just like him. While she did consider other areas in the medical field, she always came back to optometry.
