Kelly Nightingale who used to work for Independence, Inc. She helped me to get my cataracts taken care of so I can see again. I was having so many problems at the same time and she was the one who worked with me and walked me though them.

She literally held my hand when I first went to Bert Nash and I was scared to death because I didn't know what to expect. It was the best decision I ever made, because it really changed my life for the better.

She saw to it that I got my housing back and then I got my cat, Deion, and we both miss her. She was a friend and mentor. She worked so hard for all of her clients at Independence, Inc.
