At its annual meeting in Richmond on October 12, the Virginia Relay Advisory Council (VRAC) elected Ann Olliff as its newest representative from the Virginia Association of the DeafBlind. As a member of VRAC, Ann will represent the needs and concerns of Virginia Relay users who are Deaf-Blind. Ann recently had the opportunity to visit the Helen Keller National Center, a national rehabilitation program serving youth and adults who are Deaf-Blind. While there, Ann says she had the opportunity to learn a lot and gain back her sense of identity and self empowerment. A native of Richmond, Ann enjoys the company of her guide dog, Kelly. Please join us in welcoming Ann to VRAC!
