Odessa Ambrose has been a member of the ESU 5 staff since 2022.  Odessa is responsible for providing vision services for students who qualify with a visual impairment; ensure students have access to the general education curriculum by identifying and providing tools, accommodations and modifications and provide Braille instruction to students that have been identified as needing Braille as their learning media.  

When not working, Odessa enjoys watching their two teenage boys sporting events, fishing, camping and has recently began crocheting blankets.
