Eric graduated from the University of Connecticut in May of 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Digital Marketing and Analytics. Upon graduation, he moved to Dallas, Texas to work with his aunt at her medical billing company. Here he got a first-hand glimpse into the world of medicine. After returning to Connecticut, he decided to pursue another position in the medical field and came across Eye Care Associates. In November of 2018, Eric started to train as a vision therapist and now works with a wide variety of patients and loves the work he does. Outside of work, Eric ran his own childcare business and still works with some of those families to this day. Eric went through vision therapy himself when he was younger, so he understands the importance of this work and just how life-changing it could be.
