Growing up in Kenya, Karen has a passion for assisting people with disabilities. As a faculty member at LeTourneau University, she led international research projects on assistive technology developing and implementing patient-based outcome measures in low-resource environments. Companies designing and producing wheelchairs for use in low-resource areas were eager for this feedback. The wheelchair companies received data on the efficacy of their chairs, BethanyKids (our partner in Kenya) received wheelchairs, and students got a hands-on global service learning experience and were published. Karen is currently leading currently leading the Assistive Technology Catalyst Project with the goal of linking faith-based health providers to resources that enable them to reach out to those living with disabilities.
