Dr. Haotam (Tami) Phan is currently serving as Treasurer of the Retreat of Awakening organization. She is the owner and operator of Phanily Eyecare, PA. As a University of Houston graduate, she received her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Optometry degrees in 1997 and 2002, respectively. She has worked in numerous ophthalmology and optometry settings, which have helped her build her own practices in Houston and Sugar Land, TX. As a new and proud member of the Sugar Land-Fort Bend community, Dr. Phan’s objective is to establish a neighborhood eye care center with a cozy optical boutique. In her spare time, she enjoys tennis, yoga, salsa dancing, spending time with her nephews and nieces, and doing arts and crafts (especially in card making and art balloon). Annually, she, her siblings and friends participate in fundraisers by making art and animal balloons at temple festivals. All proceeds from the fundraisers go directly to orphanages in Việt Nam and vision-related charities. Her secrets to “keeping a young heart”: Be silly, laugh at yourself, do not take things too seriously and enjoy the moment.
