Amy Scrivner Joins Leadership Team
The Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, CABVI, welcomes Amy Scrivner as their new Director of Development and Community Relations. Amy joined CABVI’s staff on November 16, 2015, bringing a wealth of fund raising and community relations experience to CABVI.
Prior to coming to CABVI, Amy was the Director of Development at Easter Seals TriState. As the former Director of Development for The Cincinnati Eye Institute Foundation she worked with CABVI on a number of collaborative projects, such as the founding of the Vision Coalition of Greater Cincinnati and the creation of the OneSight Vision Center at Oyler School in Price Hill.
Amy earned her bachelor’s degree in English from Eastern New Mexico University and also did graduate coursework in Women’s Studies and English Literature at the University of Cincinnati. She resides with her husband in Price Hill.
“CABVI’s mission is close to my heart. I have an older cousin who was born blind and his experiences growing up had a big impact on me. Also, I was diagnosed ten years ago with corneal dystrophies and have had two successful surgeries,” said Amy. “I have both a personal and professional investment in helping CABVI achieve its mission to empower people who are blind or visually impaired with opportunities to live independently.”
“I am very pleased to have Amy Scrivner join the staff of CABVI as our new Director of Development and Community Relations. Her unique combination of professional experience and personal connections to our mission make her a great addition to the agency Leadership Team,” said John Mitchell, CEO.
