    Let’s Go! with Dr. Duran

    Let’s Go! with Dr. Duran

    Dr. Jessica Duran and I often wonder, how did we do it? We find ourselves in awe of having this fulfilling career as optometrists and being able to take care of people’s eyes because in our situations as first-gens we didn’t necesarily have college aspirations but luckily someone saw us and our potential and said “Hey, you can do this”.

    We also talk about how when you first graduate it’s hard to find a full time position with benefits. When practicing in big cities we often have to piece together our schedule. Because of this we can become loyal to a fault and sometimes you have to learn to walk away. She opens up about her experiences navigating optometry contracts and on knowing your worth.
