Meet Virginia Jacko, the first Totally Blind CEO
The Balancing Act is happy to present another story of hope and triumph featuring Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and its CEO Virginia Jacko, a staunch advocate for the visually impaired.
Virginia, a blind visionary in a sighted world, shares her personal story of losing her sight at age 44 and talks about her organization’s mission—and introduces viewers to her guide dog Eva. Virginia originally moved to Miami as a client of Lighthouse for the Blind before becoming the first totally blind CEO anywhere. Virginia is an inspiration to the visually impaired and the sighted—she has never lost hope, and her passionate leadership has changed so many lives for the better. Miami Lighthouse for the Blind is an organization whose goals include providing vision rehabilitation, eye health services and education that promote independence, collaborating with and training professionals, and conducting research in related fields.
