He received a Doctor of Optometry degree and began practice in Ventura in 1951. In 1954, Joe met and married Peggy Burnett, a Santa Barbara schoolteacher.

During his career in practice, Joe organized the Ventura County Optometric Society to enhance the intra-professional relations of county optometrists and to improve continued postgraduate education.
