Kerstin Brucki has a lifelong acquaintance with blindness. Wet macular degeneration runs in her dad’s side of the family. “I know the impact of not having sight,” she says. “It’s a soft spot in my heart.”
So when Kerstin was introduced to her local Lions Club in Pasadena, “I fell in love with what they do,” she told us. She quickly joined the club, and through them she found out about LSH.
Meantime, Kerstin was working at a nonprofit serving the deaf community, and when I found out more about the great outreach work she was doing there, I offered her the position of outreach coordinator at LSH.
“It’s been a unique experience,” Kerstin says. “At LSH I have the opportunity to help the client from start to finish. There have been times when I’ve met someone at a senior center, helped find a provider for them and then read their success story. You can’t beat that — it feels so good to help.”
If you know an individual or a community that could benefit from our sight or hearing programs — or if you’re part of a group that would like to host a presentation by Kerstin — please feel free to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
