Bryanna is a second year student attending the MCPHS School of Optometry. She is originally from Ottawa, but moved to Kingston in order to pursue her Bachelors of Science with a Major in Life Science at Queen’s University. Here, Bryanna was one of the presidents of an Optometry club on campus, tutored and volunteered with a few different organizations. She was diagnosed with Refractive Amblyopia at her first ever eye exam when she was 19 years old. This diagnosis sparked incredible passion and interest in the field of optometry and led her to where she is today.
Bryanna continues her journey as a optometry student excellently as seen with her many accomplishments. She has been recognized with awards by the faculty for her quick mastery of optometric skills important in any clinical setting. Her academics are no joke either; she is one of the few to achieve a BSK membership, a society whose members all have a 3.50 GPA or above. As a member of this society Bryanna readily lends her mastery of skills and theory to fellow students, which is very appreciated by everyone. In the clinic, Bryanna also maintains efficiency and works hard to ensure all patients receive the best standard of care.
Before attending MCPHS, Bryanna also worked as an optometric technician which further sparked her interest in pursuing optometry and wanting to provide quality vision care to her community. In her free time, Bryanna enjoys skiing, and spending time with loved ones. Her extracurricular service drive continues here at MCPHS as well, as she volunteers as a SVOSH member by providing screenings to the local community when there are good opportunities. Bryanna is also a key member of the CAOS team at MCPHS, assisting in arranging events and opportunities for the growing student population here.
