As a person who is blind, Cathy Ausman has a tremendous desire to work with children to foster their independence and confidence. She has been involved with VIEWS for the past four years, first as a staff at the summer camps and Short Term Placements and later serving on the board. From 1997 to 2008, Cathy worked as a Rehabilitation teacher at the CNIB in Windsor. For the last few years, she has been teaching high school at W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind. She is currently hoping to serve on the board for a one-year term.
