Sometimes you meet someone and know immediately that he or she makes the world a better place. You can’t say why, you just know. That’s how we felt when we met Elizabeth. Maybe it was her graceful presence, light-hearted sense of humor or contagious positivity. Whatever the reason, spending time with Elizabeth was uplifting.

Elizabeth wasn’t born with a disability. She lost her sight unexpectedly nearly 12 years ago during her sophomore year of college. With her dream of being a museum curator derailed, Elizabeth faced the daunting task of figuring out what to do next. She decided to major in sociology and used employment supports to land her first job. Now she works as an information specialist at New Editions Consulting, Inc<http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTUwMzA2LjQyNTUxMjIxJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE1MDMwNi40MjU1MTIyMSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE3MDg1OTU1JmVtYWlsaWQ9bm9lbC5uaWdodGluZ2FsZUBlZC5nb3YmdXNlcmlkPW5vZWwubmlnaHRpbmdhbGVAZWQuZ292JmZsPSZleHRyYT1NdWx0aXZhcmlhdGVJZD0mJiY=&&&101&&&http://www.neweditions.net/>., a position she learned about through networking.

One of the projects she supports is AbleData<http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTUwMzA2LjQyNTUxMjIxJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE1MDMwNi40MjU1MTIyMSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE3MDg1OTU1JmVtYWlsaWQ9bm9lbC5uaWdodGluZ2FsZUBlZC5nb3YmdXNlcmlkPW5vZWwubmlnaHRpbmdhbGVAZWQuZ292JmZsPSZleHRyYT1NdWx0aXZhcmlhdGVJZD0mJiY=&&&102&&&http://abledata.com/>, an informational resource that provides objective information about assistive technology and rehabilitation equipment. Elizabeth interacts with vendors, writes product descriptions and helps customers search for different products through AbleData’s online database. As an assistive technology user, she deeply understands the impact these tools have on peoples’ lives and careers. “Employers should look beyond the disability at what employees can do, rather than focusing on what they can’t,” she said.
