Dr. Athena Brasfield, 37
President and CEO, Coachella Valley Optometry
Dr. Athena Brasfield founded Coachella Valley Optometry after discovering a void of services in the East Valley community.
“I believe that everybody, no matter their demographic profile, deserves high-quality healthcare,” she says. In addition to hiring local talent for her practice, Athena volunteers at schools and community centers to help uplift underserved youth. “Through education and modeling, we can make a real, positive impact in their lives.”
