Dr. Cardoza grew up in Lemoore, CA where she attended Lemoore elementary schools and graduated from Lemoore High School. She then attended the College of the Sequoias and California State University, Fresno. She chose to become an Optometrist because she has always enjoyed helping people and found the field of Optometry to be fascinating after she spent time observing a local Optometrist at work.
She enrolled at the Illinois College of Optometry located in Chicago and graduated with a Doctor of Optometry degree. After living in a large city for 4 cold years she missed home and decided to return to the Kings County Area to practice. She joined the Hanford Optometry practice of Dr. J. Brent Madill in February 1985. After over 40 years of providing eye care to the residents of Kings County Dr Madill has retired.
She has been a member of the California Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association for thirty plus years. She has the distinction of being the first woman member and first woman president of the Tulare-Kings Counties Optometric Society.
She prides herself on providing quality eye care to the residents of our area for 35 years.
