He graduated summa cum laude in 2007 before continuing his studies at Indiana University School of Optometry in Bloomington, IN, where he would meet his wife, Michaela.
Originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Dr. Michaela Gilbert, attended Indiana University for eight years, obtaining her bachelor of science in biology before continuing her studies towards a doctorate in optometry.

They also participated in serving rural, underserved populations in Guanajuato, Mexico. Upon graduation, their love of the outdoors and Colorado sunshine inspired their relocation to Denver where they have been practicing since 2011.
