He completed a hospital-based Ocular Disease Residency at the Dayton VA Medical Center and was an adjunct faculty member at The Ohio State University, supervising fourth year optometry students.

He and Amy have owned Optometric Physicians Northwest since 2003.

In his spare time, Brad gardens, plays tennis and is “daddy” to their three sons and a daughter.

Dr. Amy

Dr. Amy“Dr. Amy” spends two days per week in the Optometric Physicians NW office, specializing in pediatric optometry; and the other five days caring for their four young children.

As a mom, Amy understands concerns regarding your child’s vision.

She especially enjoys making the office a medically sound, safe, and fun place for kids.

An Alaskan native, Amy graduated from Northwestern University then received her O.D.from The Ohio State University College of Optometry.

Amy loves tennis, running, and being ‘mom’ to their four young kids.

Our four kids--Bruce, Blake, Ava, and Bryan--keep us active, healthy and happy. They inspire us to be the best we can be and teach us to be patient and understanding with others, to relax, and to enjoy life's treasures.

Dr. Phil

Dr. PhilI grew up in the Pacific Northwest and went to school at Snohomish High where I made multiple trips to Bellingham competing in track and football events. I then headed to Brigham Young University where I graduated with a degree in Genetics and Biotechnology. After college graduation, I was accepted to one of the best Optometry Schools in the nation and am the third Ohio State graduate in the office. Along with my O.D. degree, I hold a Master's Degree in Vision Science, focusing on contact lens design.

I feel privileged to return home and join this very warm and progressive practice. My wife, Noelle, and children, Jacob (2) and Autumn (6 months), are excited to join the Bellingham community.

I love to travel, sample new foods and learn about other cultures. My passion has taken me to such places as China, and the Philippines, where I worked alongside my brother on a dental/eye mission.

If you don't see me in the office, you might find me outside playing ultimate Frisbee, wrestling with my kids, or serving in my church.
