Meet Laura Dorris!

Laura Dorris

My friends call me: Laura or sometimes Dorris

I am the: Director of Business Development & HR at Vision West, Inc.

I joined the OWA in:2013

Words my colleagues use to describe me are:Optimistic, Compassionate, Honest & Creative

The career advice I would give my 18-year-old self is:Surround yourself with people you admire and who inspire you. Stay curious, learn often, go the extra mile as often as you can and be kind to everyone you meet.

When I think about my career, I'm most excited about:No two days are alike and I love the variety! Getting to work with over 200 industry vendor partners and a very large group of members, mostly Optometrists and their staff is very rewarding. I work on a great team and we truly enjoy being able to put programs and resources together to help make a difference for Eyecare professionals.

Daily, I read:Vision Monday, The Huffington Post, ODs on Facebook, LinkedIn, HR Talk on SHRM, Invision Bulletins and The Optical Vision Site

My theme song is:Rise Up by Andra Day

I recommend:Strive to stretch out of your comfort zone and take more adventures. Add some cool/interesting Podcasts to enjoy on your daily commute, try meditation and if you have not yet already, join OWA and get involved!-- You will meet some wonderful people.
