Vancouver Chapter

Nicole Flanagan:

Nicole started in the optical field in September 2010 by completing her apprenticeship while employed at the Eye and Ear Clinic in Wenatchee, WA. She apprenticed under some wonderful mentors who really helped her hone her skills as an optician. In September 2014, she became a licensed dispensing optician in Washington State. In 2016, she went on to live in the Seattle area for a couple of years and had the opportunity to work at Expressions in Eyewear in Woodinville. She longed to move back to her hometown to be closer to family. In February 2019, she relocated to the Vancouver area and currently works as a licensed dispensing optician at Evergreen Eye Care in Vancouver. While not working, she can be found at home with her husband and two cats while curled up with a good novel.

Promoting the professional stature of opticianry through educational opportunities, legislative activity, and national communications.

The OAW hosts opportunities throughout the year to earn continuing education credits. Visit our events page for updates!

The OAW consists of optical professionals from every corner of Washington state and beyond.

The OAW is proud to support many organizations that provide free or low-cost eyecare to our communities.
