I had the honor of sitting down (yep, I actually sat for 30 whole minutes!) with the mega talented Jennifer Lynn Robinson, host of Main Line Connect, to discuss my most passionate work of my life – a passion that was completely unintended and not planned for! Jenifer did such a great job of reeling in my over caffeinated, highly excited self to get to the core of why I work at the level I do to support my blind sons in achieving their dreams, with some of those dreams involving sight.
Here is the interview and below are some key points and the time stamps of when they are discussed.
