Meet Julie


My name is Julie and I am legally blind. Due to a severe reaction to a medication, I became visually impaired. The experience of losing my sight overnight has been extremely traumatic. However, over the past four years, I have learnt many skills.

I have learnt through the Apple Store how to use VoiceOver and Siri on the iPhone. I have received instruction in the use of the white blind cane and I am about to undertake computer studies for people who are blind. I have gained these skills and experiences from the funding of the NDIS.

I can offer you:

  • empathy, understanding and supportive listening,
  • motivation and assistance in obtaining important skills and knowledge.
  • guidance and support  for your planning with the NDIS.

I look forward to meeting you and sincerely hope that I can provide you with the help you need. ​
