Ashley Nemeth: Totally Blind, Entrepreneur,Mother of Three, Wrestling Champion

Ashley Nemeth is totally blind. She is a proud mother of three grown children, an entrepreneur, a manager of CNIB programs for Manitoba but it was during her high school years that Ashley discovered that despite her vision loss, she was very good at wrestling.


Ashley Nemeth has worked at CNIB (www.cnib.ca) for 5 years. She has seen some technical advancements that have assisted people who are blind or partially sighted but in this episode we talk about the continued education required to bring all people with disabilities into a life without barriers. Ashley reminds us that during COVID it is a challenge for blind people and blind people with guide dogs to respect a 6 foot social distance barrier. Her ultimate goal is to be part of a team CNIB that puts her out of a job because the world around us is completely accessible and individuals have access to everything they need. Definitely an uplifting message of hope to start 2022!
