Transition Projects Director
Rebecca is the mother of two transition aged teens. She joined the Federation after moving to Massachusetts for better medical and educational supports for her younger daughter. Her work with non-profits over the last decade has been a labor of love, beginning with co-founding Visually Impaired Preschool Services in Indiana. To better support her daughter and other children with disabilities, she obtained advocacy training through Partners in Policymaking. Rebecca has been an invited presenter at local and national conferences and a vocal advocate for families of children with vision loss and multiple disabilities. More recently, she worked with transition aged youth at Perkins School for the Blind. Rebecca is passionate about offering support and encouragement to families and youth with disabilities as they navigate the transition from high school to adult life.
