Dr. Champion's goal in every eye exam is to see a smile on each patient's face as they go through all of the testing to ensure their eyes are healthy and their vision is as clear as possible. This is especially true when he is working with children and tries to make each test a new "game". Born and raised in Edmonton, Dr. Champion loves working and living in his home town. He has lived elsewhere, though: in Africa for volunteer work, and in Oregon as he earned his Optometry Degree from Pacific University, which he completed in 2013. He enjoys volunteering in the community in various ways including presenting about eye health to Kindergartens and educating new moms through the Mommy Connections program.
For his free time, he loves hanging out with his wife and two kids. He enjoys teaching some of his hobbies to his children, including longboarding and basketball.
