Shirley Proppe, Contract Marketing Coordinator

After my 26-year corporate career came to an unexpected end in 2008, I decided to make the next chapter of my life about doing something I could be passionate about.  As the Program Coordinator for a local nonprofit, I worked for nine years helping older adults who were blind or visually impaired achieve more independence and a greater quality of life.  When that nonprofit closed due to a lack of funding, it was a natural transition for me to join the team at AINC.  I had been referring my clients to this important resource for many years.  I am so thankful to be working with such a wonderful and valuable organization.
