“I am very excited to be a part of this growing organization. I hope my experience and leadership in the field will aid in breaking barriers for blind or visually impaired athletes in the Northwest. It’s important to remember: a loss of sight, is not a loss of vision. Together our programs have infinite possibilities and I am blessed to be in this position.” said Gibbins.
