Dayna was raised in Calgary, Alberta. She began her university career at St. Mary’s College before entering into the Doctor of Optometry program at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, in Ontario. Dayna graduated with honors in 2007 after completing her externship at John D. Dingell Veterans Affair Medical Center in Detroit, Michigan. In India, Guyana, Costa Rica, and Africa Dayna was able to participate in eye care charity projects. She hopes to continue with her charitable work in the future.
Dayna currently works out of Bonavista Eye Care, Olds Eye Care and Sundre Eye Care. Additionally, she works at the Sight Enhancement Clinic at the Rockyview Hospital helping individuals with low vision. Her experience has offered her exposure to a wide variety of eye pathologies. This has led to a special interest in children’s vision, low vision and specialty contact lenses.
In her spare time Dayna loves spending quality time with her two children and husband. She loves snowboarding, golfing and pretty much anything that has to do with being active outdoors.
