Building Consensus, Breaking Barriers, and Changing Lives

VisionServe Alliance is thrilled to recognize Nancy D. Miller, Retiring Executive Director and CEO, VISIONS/Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired, for her exceptional leadership in the BVI field, and a career defined by creativity, commitment, and dedication to improving the lives of people with blindness and low vision.

For more than 50 years, Nancy D. Miller has worked tirelessly to improve health and quality of life for people with vision loss. Serving as Executive Director/CEO of VISIONS/Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired for three decades, she continually expanded programs and services.

Her dedication to older adults living with blindness and other visual impairments, and her work on behalf of blind caregivers inspires us all. Nancy is a powerful advocate whose voice has raised crucial awareness of life-changing vision rehabilitation and other services,” said Lee Nasehi, President and CEO of VisionServe Alliance.“

We extend our deepest gratitude for Nancy’s unique leadership and all her continued advocacy and support of people with blindness and low vision.
