“Amy’s passion and commitment to excellence makes her an incredible asset to Envision Dallas at a pivotal time when we are entering the next phase of our organization’s progression,” said Michael Monteferrante, president and CEO of Envision, Inc. “Her contributions as an ambassador for Envision Dallas will be instrumental in helping us achieve our strategic goals to improve the quality of life for people with visual impairments.”
“We’re delighted to add Amy to our Dallas team,” said David Stupay, executive director of Envision Dallas. “She knows the Dallas market extremely well and has a strong track record of success. The relationships that she develops will provide a firm and essential foundation for our efforts to provide services to more people in North Texas who are blind or visually impaired.”
Britton has a master’s in higher, adult, and lifelong learning from Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich., and is a certified fundraising executive (CFRE). The Dallas native joins Envision from Michigan State University, where she served as director of development for Texas and the Great Plains Region for eight years. Having more than 16 years of experience working in nonprofits, Britton previously held development positions with Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Greater Dallas, Girls Incorporated of Metropolitan Dallas and Camp Summit, Inc., a residential camp in Dallas for children and adults with disabilities.
“I’m honored to be in a position to advance Envision Dallas’ mission during these exciting times. Members of our community who are blind or visually impaired have much to look forward to in the coming months as we roll out expanded programs and services in Dallas that are designed with professional job opportunities and education in mind,” said Britton. “I am eager to share all that Envision Dallas does with charitably minded individuals, families and organizations and to work with them to explore ways we can partner in support of our ongoing mission.”
Envision, which has locations in 11 states, added Envision Dallas to its family in 2018. In recent months, the organization has taken strategic steps towards expanding and enhancing its North Texas operation. This past October, it announced that Envision Dallas would become the home of the American Foundation for the Blind Center on Vision Loss and Esther’s Place, a model apartment designed to help individuals who are blind or visually impaired gain higher levels of independence in a home setting. Renovations to the Envision Dallas headquarters to accommodate these programs are currently under way.
