Tower Clock Eye Center optometrist Michael Servi, OD, recently visited St. Norbert College to share his insights about what a degree in science offers students. Dr. Servi explained to nearly 40 biology and chemistry students how he uses his science education, and how the students’ science background can best serve them in their future careers.
“I want to help students explore their options with a science degree, it can be hard to translate class work into real world scenarios, and how that knowledge can lead to a career,” Servi said.
Servi focused on several applied sciences such as physics, biology and chemistry and how he uses them in real life, both in his career as an optometrist at Tower Clock Eye Center and in his interest in the brewing industry.
“College teaches students how to learn,” Servi noted. “Not only are they learning basic sciences in the classroom, but they’re learning how to problem solve. No matter what career they choose, problem solving skills are essential.”
Dr. Servi also expressed why he chose optometry as a career, largely because it allows him to make a difference in peoples lives, “I get my greatest satisfaction when patients say they have been dealing with a problem for many years and I improve their quality of life,” he said. “Helping people is as real-life as it gets.”
