Jennifer Carpenter

“I would go out and meet people because I wanted them to come to Eye Contact. I didn’t want them to be fearful of anything that was going on.”

Jennifer Carpenter lost her sight over a period of just three weeks. Dealing with this life changing disability as well as being the mother to a young son, Jennifer sought advice from Kingston Association for the Blind and soon became a proactive member of the blind community. She established an advice service called Eye Contact and continues to advocate for accessibility in Kingston.
