We are happy to announce that Leslie Hall has rejoined the Lighthouse family. Leslie first began working at the Lighthouse for the Blind of Fort Worth in February of 2013 as our Head of Client Services. She brought with her an extensive background of working with individuals with blindness to increase independence and embrace full lives of confidence and dignity. Under her leadership, the Client Services Team grew to include services in Assistive Technology, Independent living skills training, braille classes, health and fitness, and Orientation and Mobility to name just a few. Leslie is a motivated, highly conscientious Certified Rehabilitation Counselor with 20+ years’ professional experience in blind rehabilitation, management, and vocational & independent living training programs. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Missouri State University in Sociology and English; and a master’s degree from Texas Tech University in Rehabilitation Counseling. She left the organization in August 2016 for family reasons.
After a brief two year break, Leslie has happily returned to the Lighthouse for the Blind of Fort Worth as the Head of Client Services with a fully functioning Client Services Team. Both Leslie and the team look forward to providing services to more people of Tarrant and surrounding counties and reaching more families in the community. The continued goal through the scope and practice of services rendered is to raise the general public’s expectations of individuals who are blind for the purpose of creating a more integrated and diverse community. Please do not hesitate to contact Leslie or anyone on the Client Services team if you have questions or have a need for assistance.
