Jenny Eichner grew up in a military family and attended Radford University in Radford, Virginia where she received two bachelor’s degrees, one in Music Therapy and the other in German. She also received a master’s degree in Special Education for Orientation and Mobility (teaching the blind and visually impaired how to travel safely and efficiently) from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. She is currently the music therapist and orientation and mobility specialist at the KS State School for the Blind.
Jenny’s passion for skiing, teaching and helping others was ignited when she volunteered to take her students who are blind and visually impaired to learn how to ski or snowboard. Four years later, she helped co-found and began serving as the Secretary and Communications Director for Midwest Adaptive Sports (MAS) in 2011. Jenny loves to teach those with and without disabilities how to ski and snowboard and she now holds certifications in alpine level 2, adaptive level 1, snowboard level 1, children’s specialist level 1 and freestyle specialist level 1. She is an instructor at Snow Creek Ski Area in Weston, MO as well as at Breckenridge Ski Resort in Breckenridge, CO.
Jenny also loves to travel and spend time with her family and friends, and is a member of Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA-AASI). She plans to continue furthering her education through obtaining certifications and participating in continuing education.
