Board of Directors

Cathy Eichelberger Long, Secretary

Cathy was born December 23rd although parents planned for the birth to occur in late March. Due to early arrival and the need to gain weight and receive oxygen support to continue to breathe, Cathy grew up totally blind. She said that probably was the only time she was ever under-weight! Educated at Overbrook School for the Blind, Philadelphia, PA. Graduated from Overbrook in 1972. Went to business school in Pittsburgh PA and then worked as a clerical worker in the Medical transcription pool at Holy Spirit Hospital for four years and then for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for thirty-five years. Cathy lives independently in her home as a widow with two young male cats—Smokey and Bandit. She has been a strong advocate for most of her life. If you do not want to know what she thinks, do not ask her.
