I am a doctoral candidate at Texas Tech University, studying Special Education with an emphasis on the education of individuals who are blind or visually impaired. My research interests are in international efforts to empower and improve the lives of persons with disabilities, and especially in the use of quality of life measurements to evaluate the impact of international interventions. I have worked for a central Texas school district as a teacher of students with severe and profound disabilities and as a teacher of students with visual impairments. I have also been recognized by the sensory disabilities field through the National Leadership Consortium in Sensory Disabilities fellowship.LEARN MORE
