Dr. Parrish graduated valedictorian of her optometry school class in 2005 and then went on to complete a Residency in Primary Care/Ocular Disease at the VA Hospital in Portland, OR. She is originally from New York, but discovered the VA/DC area when she attended American University for her undergraduate studies. She returned to this area in 2008. She has been with this office since that time and particularly enjoys the relationships she has developed with the patients she has been seeing for many years. Dr. Parrish is active in Optometric Organizations, including recently serving as President of the Northern Virginia Optometric Society. Her time outside of work is spent enjoying raising her two sons with her husband.
