Professional At Large-Julie Kushman
My name is Julie Kushman, and I have been a teacher for the visually impaired for 7 years.  I received my masters in Orientation and Mobility from WMU and my Bachelors as VI teacher from EMU.  I started attending MPVI events in 2009.  This organization has provided my families with many resources, knowledge of the blind community, and friendship. I have also volunteered with other organizations such as OUB, MBAA's sports camp, MDELIO's CVI team, and Lions Bear Lake Camp.  I have two children, Lilly (6) and Lucas (3), with my husband Dave, a special education teacher as well. We love volunteering as a family. My daughter has already voiced an interest in being a VI teacher just like her mom.
