Kathy Zwald

Life Skill Program Manager

Kathy Zwald has worked in the field of blindness and visual impairment as an Orientation & Mobility Specialist and Rehabilitation Specialist for over 40 years.  She was drawn to the field as an undergraduate looking for a vocation of study that would fulfill her need for service to others.  Since that moment, she went on to receive her Bachelor's Degree in Orientation & Mobility and has since served in that capacity. She has also received a Master's Degree in Recreation Therapy, another Master's Degree in Adapted Physical Education and her Doctorate from the University of Arizona in Visual Impairment and Education.

Her work in the field of Blindness and Visual Impairment has given her the opportunity to work in a variety of settings including direct service delivery, administration, university program coordination and consultation with other blind agencies. She has worked in Australia, England and Lebanon in direct service and as a consultant, in addition to Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana and Arizona.

She is honored to be a part of the ETI program and looks forward to the process of growth and development for the organization.
