Throughout my entire career, I have always made an effort to encourage women to achieve their full potential. And now, as OWA president, it is truly a privilege and honor to represent women within the optical industry. There are a tremendous number of women who are inspired, motivated and touched everyday by the exceptional initiatives of the OWA, and we are all united in our approach to foster an association which provides support and guidance to such an outstanding group of distinguished women.
