Alice began her professional career analyzing telecommunication signals. Surviving serious injuries from a car accident, including broken cervical vertebrae and a traumatic brain injury, she gained an appreciation for the struggle to maintain one’s identity and independence. After a miraculous and ongoing recovery, she was compelled to help empower individuals of all abilities. Since 2006, she has been an entrepreneur in areas of accessibility which includes customized wheeled mobility devices such as strollers, walkers, and manual and electric wheelchairs. Her current work involves low-tech and high-tech assistive technologies (AT) including customization of electronic devices using inexpensive, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts from local and online vendors. Alice has also recently partnered with a local non-profit, charter high school to promote science and engineering education while teaching students useful skills in creating accessibility devices. She has Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Applied Mathematics.
