I have been the Executive Director for the Association for the Visually Impaired since 2015. I serve as the chief spokesperson, representing the organization in the community and works with board committees and volunteers to develop and implement new strategies for fundraising to advance AVI’s mission and expand services to people with visual impairments. I also supervises all areas of operations including: contract management, fiscal accountability, grants, fund raising, marketing, public relations and office management.
AVI is a non-for-profit 501 (c) 3, founded in 1973 to serve blind and visually impaired residents of Rockland and Orange Counties. AVI provides training to the blind and visually impaired to ensure independence and the ability to live a healthy and meaningful lifestyle within the community in the home of their choice. The agency also provides comprehensive vision rehabilitation services, support meetings and escorted transportation services to the blind and visually impaired in Rockland County.
I have a particular connection to issues related to blindness, as my grandmother, like many seniors, lived many years with Macular Degeneration. At the time, services and low vision aids were very limited. I am proud to connect people of all ages to service that allow them to remain independent.
