“She’s tiny, but has a huge heart!” Says, one of her fellow co-workers. Sophia Kipp has been an inspiring and fun individual to many at Beyond Vision and has created a family bond with many of her co-workers. Sophia learned about Beyond Vision 15 years ago on a newspaper that her husband was reading, and ever since then 15 years and counting, Sophia has enjoyed feeling a sense of belonging and joy while working at Beyond Vision in Assembly and Packaging.

Sophia carries out a natural professional talent of striving to do the best she can every day. In addition to talents, Sophia holds a pride and joy in cooking Mexican food for her family.

Sophia’s favorite job is being on the Auto-baggers. Sophia states that, being on the auto baggers gives her a chance to bag up various raw materials all day long and eventually you find a rhythm you must try to keep up with. Sophia comes to work with a great attitude of willingness to work and her favorite part about her job is the people she works with. She feels like she has a family at Beyond Vision. Sophia said, “On my first day after work, I went home and cried because I was able to work again. I never knew that there was a place like Beyond Vision, who would provide a workplace for people who are blind and provide the accessibility tools needed to make me successful in my job.”

A piece of advice Sophia likes to share with others is, “Don’t give up because you always have a place. And be proud of yourself because you know you can do anything.”
