    I have worked in the field for over 45 years, both as an O&M Specialist and TCVI. My current role is partnering with parents of children from 0-5, those with low vision, and those with additional needs. My goal is to give parents the skills they need to be more interactive with, supportive of and better able to advocate for their child's O&M development as a student and a more enriched life as an adult.
