Emily Taylor-Snell, M.Ed., Consultant

The Florida & Virgin Islands (FAVI) Deaf-Blind Collaborative congratulates Emily Taylor-Snell as she begins her retirement after serving individuals and families affected by deaf-blindness and their educational teams–as well as many schools, districts, professionals and organizations– over her impressive career.

Emily Taylor-Snell served as Project Coordinator for the FAVI Deaf-Blind Collaborative for 16 years. She fulfilled multiple essential roles, providing technical assistance to families, groups and in the schools, and leading FAVI’s interagency collaborations. Emily also extended the resources of the FAVI Deaf-Blind Collaborative into the Virgin Islands. Emily helped to assess the needs of individuals and families in the islands who are affected by deaf-blindness. Additionally, Emily helped educators and service providers determine the models of support that would best meet the needs of children and families in St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John.

The Florida & Virgin Islands Deaf-Blind Collaborative thanks Emily for touching so many lives with her caring and commitment.  She is an irreplaceable team member and a cherished friend.  We wish Emily health and happiness, as she begins an exciting new chapter.  We continue to be inspired by her unmatched expertise, kindness, and energy, and we look forward to a fruitful continuing relationship.
