Jenny Wood is an Envision Dallas employee in our Interface Call Center Department. Jenny is blind, having lost her vision at age 13. She is also a wife and mother of two kids. After taking some time off from the workforce to raise her kids, she found it quite difficult to job search. Let alone being a woman and a mother, also having a disability made it very hard for Jenny to be given a chance, and she felt like she wasn't seen, heard or appreciated. Now, Jenny is thriving providing for her family and leveling up in her career, and was just announced a winner of the 2023 Employee of the Year Award for indirect labor.
"I don’t have to justify what I am capable of, because people here just get me. I don’t have to take on the role of ‘the blind person.’ I blend and fit right in, and everyone accepts me for who I am.” - Jenny Wood
