Dr. Ha grew up in the Bay Area and majored in biology at Cal State East Bay. She then graduated from the Southern California College of Optometry. During school, her internship experience varied widely from seeing Native American populations in New Mexico, ophthalmology care in Las Vegas, to primary care at the naval medical center in San Diego. Her area of interest is in primary care optometry.
Shortly after graduating, she moved to New York where she practiced for 9 years in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Westchester. In 2015, having had her fill of snow and east coast weather, she moved back to her native California with her husband and two young children in tow. She currently works part time so that she can spend time to raise her children, and also enjoys tennis, cardio classes, and reading.
