Greetings Everyone:

It is with much pleasure and pride that I celebrate and honor all VRTs
for the awesome work that they do!  I am extremely proud and honored to
be a CVRT!  I too stumbled into this profession at a time in my life
that I wanted and needed a change in my career path.  I knew that I
would one day want to give back to a community that I belonged to for I
am visually impaired.  Although, I never had the pleasure of working
with a CVRT, once discovered that this profession existed, I was
immediately drawn to learn more about it!  I enrolled into a Vision
Rehabilitation Therapy Masters program at The Pennsylvania College of
Optometry in 2000 where I was taught and mentored by Maureen Duffy!  She
introduced me to this awesome profession in such a profound way that I
knew this was my calling.  From that time to present, I have
continuously enjoyed working and teaching VRT principles and skills.  I
believe the best part of my role in teaching and training VRT principles
and skills is seeing those I have taught (students and/or clients) teach
others!  It is kind-of like “paying it forward”!   How blessed I am to
have found this life work.

Thank you to all of you who labor with me in this vain to make a
positive difference in the lives of blind and visually impaired
individuals.  I applaud you!

Warmest regards,
Lachelle Smith, CVRT
