Dr. Kishi completed her Bachelor of Science degree at Chaminade University in Honolulu while also playing for the varsity women's basketball team there. She then went on to the University of Waterloo where she graduated with honours from the School of Optometry.

Dr. Marilyn Wong
From Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, to University of Saskatchewan, then University of Waterloo, practices in Toronto, Calgary and now Vancouver, Dr. Marilyn Wong is honoured to be an associate at Dumalo Optometry.
As a longtime Fellow of the American Academy she strives to practise the art and science of vision care through lifelong learning with special interests in dry eye, nutrition, and eye disease.
The connection between eye health and body health has driven Marilyn to commit to fitness for herself and her patients ever since university. At the University of Waterloo she met figure skaters on the varsity team who taught her to skate, something she has continued to pursue, along with running and strength training.
While raising three sons and having two practices in Calgary, Marilyn volunteered many years on school councils and community associations.
The natural beauty of BC drew her to complete a solo hike of the West Coast Trail two years ago, something that instilled in her a dream of hiking to Everest base camp and doing the Annapurna Trail in Nepal.
Dr. Wong is happy not to endure any more winters in Calgary (6 AM hockey practices for her sons on -30 degree days were not cancelled).
