Background Information


Bainy Cyrus was born in Norfolk, VA with a severe-to-profound hearing impairment and attended Clarke School for oral education at age five. After seven years there, she came home for good and attended regular school without mainstreaming. With the help of note takers and private tutors, Bainy graduated from Virginia Tech in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in landscape horticulture. She worked as a landscape designer for nearly 20 years before deciding to change careers. In 2004 Bainy achieved a master’s degree in counseling from Old Dominion University. She has worked as a job coach for Hired Hands and Associates since 2006, assisting persons with disabilities in competitive employment.  Bainy lives in Norfolk with her hearing husband Steve, sharing their interests in hiking, biking, gardening, and RVing.

She wrote a memoir "All Eyes" which tells about her life growing up as a deaf person.  Along with personal stories, “All Eyes” provides rich insight on all aspects and controversies of deafness without being one-sided. Bainy is here to educate, entertain, and enlighten readers about deafness and is willing to listen to all the suggestions on how to market her self-published book!

All Eyes, A Memoir of Deafness
In Bainy Cyrus's All Eyes, she tells about her life growing up in both the deaf and the hearing world. Bainy first attended Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, MA, where she learned to speak and struggled with language development. It was typical for a deaf child to cope with delayed English language in the 1960s and 1970s. After seven years at Clarke, Bainy began to face difficulties in regular school but eventually overcame obstacles in the hearing world, at times with humor. She also relates the importance of her lifelong friendships with two girls Cheryl and Diane she met at Clarke, and how the different paths that they took influenced her as an adult.
