Now she has over 20 years of experience writing and editing for disability services and assistive technology programs. Her work history includes 15 years consulting for the Massachusetts AT Program (MassMATCH), editing the Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) newsletter, and editing AT Program News for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA).
