VISIONS Consulting L3C
In 2016, Liz founded VISIONS Consulting, which provides hands-on workshops for a variety of audiences, including legislators, business owners, and other consultants. These workshops teach their participants how to engage with visually impaired clients, coworkers, or customers. They dispel myths, place an emphasis on other senses, create a dialog about what works, and explore strategies for including the visually impaired rather than segregating them.
