Rebecca Blaevoet

Rebecca Blaevoet is the bookkeeper and bean-counter. She is also probably the one who will pick up the phone if you call. She collects languages the way other people collect stamps and enjoys gardening and cheese-making.

My daughter was given some special, but less commonly found books – especially in the Braille world – for Christmas. We requested to have the Braille overlay put on one of these books, so that my daughter could follow along as we read to her. It was helpful being able to sit down and discuss what we wanted to have done with Rebecca and Emmanuel, and we were impressed with the final product. I was also really impressed with how meticulous they were. They obviously took their time to get it just right, and the lines of Braille were perfectly straight on the page.

{Regarding Employer Appreciation Certificates for a co-op programme where vision-impaired high-school students complete co-op placements with local companies}

They are such a wonderful addition to our Employer Appreciation gift…..there certainly are no other certificates out there like them!!!
