Dr. Yamamoto’s optometric training includes various diverse modes of practice including a community health center, military hospital, Veterans Affairs medical center, private practice and Indian Health Services hospital.

She then went on to earn her Doctor of Optometry degree at Western University of Health Science in Pomona, California where she was active in student organizations and societies such as the Optometric Private Practice Business Club, California Optometric Association (COA), and served as a board member of the American Student Optometric Association (AOSA). She graduated as a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society and received the “Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities” award in 2017.
