Shirley gradually lost her vision from an eye condition called retinitis pigmentosa. Shirley’s formal education as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, along with her own adjustment to declining vision, has given her a keen understanding of the needs of blind and visually impaired consumers whom she serves. In 2008, she completed the Vision Specialist Certification Program through Mississippi State University’s Graduate Studies Program. In 2010, Shirley successfully completed the Executive Commitment to Excellence in Leadership (EXCEL) training program through the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. Shirley has achieved these accomplishments through a great deal of hard work and determination.
