My name is Amanda Kelly Wilson. I live in White, Georgia with my parents and our two rescue poodles. I have rp or retinitis pigmentosa. I am 44 years old. I have a master’s degree in special education interrelated which means I can teach individuals with intellectual, behavioral, and learning disabilities. I graduated in 1997 from the University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Georgia. I taught in three different school systems in Georgia for  seven years. I took classes to become a vision teacher, but I didn’t finish them. I have had two Seeing Eye dogs from the Seeing Eye. Both of them are deceased. I am waiting to go back next year to receive my third dog guide. I mentored with National federation of the blind or NFB and at the Center for Visually Impaired CVI for a while.
