Erin P. Doherty is a production editor for Optical Society’s (OSA’s) Optics Express, an online scientific journal. Outside of her workday, Erin adopts and fosters parakeets from Washington Rescue Alliance (WRA). Occasionally, she fosters other animals, personally finding forever homes for a domestic dove (who was in a carrier on a picnic table with a cat trying to get to her) and a 4-pound Chihuahua (whose owner was planning to move away after dumping him at the shelter). Her pop-up playpen and quarantine cage are poised to safely accommodate such surprise animal guests.
