Make an immediate difference in the life of a child with visual impairment.

Staff

Our staff is the backbone of our mission.

A Note from the Executive Director

VIPS believes the families we serve deserve to be taught by the highest level educators in the field of visual impairment and blindness to help each child reach their highest potential. VIPS is nationally recognized because we strive to attract only highly certified, compassionate,  skilled team members concentrating on continuous improvement and industry advancements. I am so very proud to introduce our amazing teachers, instructional assistants and the critically important administrative team that help to make our services possible.
