Jacqueline Hallauer, OD (VA)

Jacqueline Hallauer is one of multiple Staff Optometrists at the Woody Williams VA Medical Center in Huntington, WV. She is actively involved in the Tele-eye program and serves as the Residency Coordinator for their four residents.  Dr. Hallauer graduated from MCPHS in Massachusetts in 2017, she completed her residency at the John D. Dingell VA in Detroit MI and became a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry last fall in New Orleans.

Dr. Hallauer is active in our profession – she has served in a few different roles for AFOS including Education Co-Chair, she is a member of the American Optometric Association Education Committee and serves as a Team Chair for the ACOE Residency Accreditation visits. Dr. Hallauer is originally from Northern Michigan and a graduate from Michigan State University (Go Green!). Right after clinical rotations were announced third year, Dr. Hallauer’s first choice VA opted not to take on another student the next year… at that point, Dr. Hallauer was reassigned to the VA in West Virginia and her thoughts were the same as most of yours “oh dear goodness West Virginia here I come;” after those 4 short months, she knew that West Virginia was exactly the place for her. Shortly after joining the VA as a full-time Staff Doctor, Dr. Hallauer met her wonderful husband, Russ, while working at the VA and they settled down on a small farm in the hills of WV where they have various animals including horses, cows, goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, cats, dogs, and Mr. Foo-Foo the bunny. If Dr. Hallauer is not out and about on the farm with her husband, you will find her crocheting her next project!
