Dr. Monea - Women of Inspiration

About Dr. Diana Monea

Dr. Diana Monea grew up on a farm near Rockglen, Saskatchewan. She attended the University of Waterloo, graduating with a Doctor of Optometry in 1978. She has since practiced in Regina, Saskatchewan, and subsequently opened two clinics in Calgary, Alberta. She became the first optometrist in Canada to create a website dedicated to the provision of eye health information when she created in the summer of 1999. Dr. Monea was also the first optometrist in North America to profile case studies in optometry, beginning in April of 2000. All digital pictures, corneal topography, and field analysis illustrations were drawn from her database of more than 200,000 eye exams that she has personally performed. In 2016, Dr. Monea was honoured by the Calgary Chamber of Commerce with a Leadership Award. That same year she was awarded the AAO Service Award August 2016 by her fellow peers in recognition of outstanding efforts and exceptional contributions made to the advancement of professional optometry in Alberta.

Giving back and caring, making a difference when you can drives her clinic philosophy. Dr. Monea and her staff of doctors contribute to many charities such as Easter Seals, local hockey and sports teams, kids programs, golf events and recently together with Paul Brandt and Paul Hardy to end human trafficking “Not In My City.”

Doors open at 11:30 am to connect, with our program commencing at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm.

Our program starts at 12:00 pm with a Mediation Moment to ease you out of your day to reclaim a powerful hour to invest in yourself personally and professionally.

We believe in embracing diversity as this is where the “magic” happens. When you connect with The Nest, you build authentic connections with a diverse community of women and men who are passionate about connecting with other like-minded individuals living on purpose to build their business, advance in their career or pay it forward in the community to support another woman on her journey through mentorship.

Our Leaders and Influencers Lunch program features influential leaders who are leading with purpose, breaking barriers, and making a difference in the community and around the globe! They are the trailblazers who believe in sharing the road to success and supporting those around them.

The secret sauce is diversity! In the Nest, everyone leaves with a new connection, inspired and ready to act! This is the perfect event for your corporate teams, solo entrepreneur, business leader, professional or anyone who wishes to lead by example.
