Carly Fredericks, President

“Ava’s Mom” After many years of advocating for Ava, Carly has found a love for the field of Deaf-Blindness. She is now the Family Specialist for the New Jersey Consortium on Deaf-Blindness at The College of New Jersey. She is also the Program Coordinator for iCanConnect/NJ, the Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program that provides telecommunications equipment for individuals with combined hearing and vision loss. Recently she received the honor of becoming a Board Member for The National Family Association for the Deaf-Blind (NFADB). “Ava’s Voice” has been a long time dream for her along with her husband Paul. Mason and Miley, Ava’s siblings, have also become quite the little advocates for their sister and take personal pride in Ava’s Voice.
