#WOStrong: How Women ODs Are Persevering in the Crisis

May 20, 2020

Women In Optometry had the honor of sharing messages of support from its readers through its #WOStrong initiative this year as the country and its businesses faced the impact of COVID-19.

In April and May, WO released the Allergan-sponsored three-part video series—A Whole New World; Life, Interrupted; and We’ve Got This—featuring ODs from a variety of work settings and leadership positions. The ODs sent in their well wishes and honest feelings throughout the pandemic from their homes or their offices.

WO sends a special thank you to all of the participating doctors: Melissa Barnett, OD, FAAO, FSLS, FBCLA, of Sacramento, California; Dori M. Carlson, OD, FAAO, of Park River, North Dakota; Caroline Guerrero Cauchi, OD, FIAO, of La Mesa, California; Mamie Chan, OD, of Albuquerque, New Mexico; Jaclyn Garlich, OD, FAAO, of Boston, Massachusetts; Whitney Hauser, OD, FAAO, of Memphis, Tennessee; Nikki Iravani, OD, of Santa Clara, California; Monica Johnsonbaugh, OD, of Grosse Pointe, Michigan; Selina R. McGee, OD, FAAO, of Edmond, Oklahoma; Joan Miller, OD, of Hillsboro, Oregon; Elizabeth Muckley, OD, FAAO, of Kent, Ohio; Sidra Qadri, OD, of Los Angeles, California; Jessilin Quint, OD MS, MBA, FAAO, of Augusta, Maine; Maria Sampalis, OD, of Cranston, Rhode Island; Bridgitte Shen Lee, OD, FBCLA, FAAO, of Houston, Texas; and Rachael Wruble, OD, FAAO, of Charlotte, North Carolina.
