20/20 Money Episode 27 – A Tale of Two Roles: The Career Journey of Britt Gustafson, OD

May 13, 2019

Hello, and welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Dr. Britt Gustafson.

Britt is a practicing optometrist in Eden Prairie, MN. The reason that I wanted to have Britt on the show is that she has used her degree as an optometrist to not only provide clinical care to patients in a practice setting, but also by getting involved in the research and development of contact lenses and contact lens solutions. In this episode we talk about Britt’s path in optometry and discuss her current practice setting and addressing some of the challenges and subsequent opportunities that her practice model presents. We also talk about her involvement in participating in clinical trials and the R&D of contact lenses and contact lens solutions and what it’s meant to her personally and professionally and how her interest in the research side of optometry lead her to become a consultant for one of the national contact lens manufacturers…and how she earned the opportunity to work in that capacity. She also shares with us how she balances the demand of both her clinical and travel schedule and what it’s meant to her financially to engage in this vertical of optometry.

As a reminder, you can get all the information discussed in today’s conversation by visiting our website at integratedpwm.com and clicking on the Learning Center. While there, you can also set up a 15min pre-discovery conversation to learn a little bit more about what it means to work with our firm or download our popular ebook called “Five Tips to Financial Freedom for Optometrists.”

And with that introduction, I hope you enjoy my conversation with Dr. Britt Gustafson.
