Title: T2RERC welcomes new staff
Publication: Assistive Technology Transfer Update: Vol. 5 Issue 1 (Spring)
T2RERC is thrilled to welcome Wendy Strobel as their newest full-time staff
member performing as Demand Pull's Principal Research Support Specialist.
Wendy is a Rehabilitation Counselor and an expert in educational and vocational
assistive technology. She also holds expertise in related law and public
policy. Wendy acquired this expertise through the Virginia Commonwealth University-
Medical College of Virginia where she earned her Masters degree in Rehabilitation
Counseling. Her work with T2RERC will provide her with the opportunity to
coordinate technology transfer activities from producers of needed technologies
and get them to manufacturers of assistive technology products for the blind
and visually impaired.
Wendy received her Bachelors of Science in Psychology
degree from the State University of New York at Oswego and was working
as an Assistive Technology and Transition
Specialist at the George Mason University Kellar Institute for Human Disabilities
(KIHd) before joining T2RERC's team. At the KIHd Wendy was responsible
for providing information and suggestions to educators on the implementation
of assistive technology in the schools. She also worked with transition specialists
to introduce students with disabilities to post-school activities. Prior to
her current employment with T2RERC, Wendy was a training associate at Virginia
Commonwealth University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Workplace Supports.
Whereas before Wendy taught the applications of technology and trained the trainers
in the applications of Assistive Technology, she will now have the opportunity
to utilize the knowledge and skills that she attained and work directly with
the manufacturers who will design, develop and market the next generation
of Assistive Technology products. As thrilled as T2RERC is to have Wendy,
Wendy is equally as thrilled to be contributing to the development of the cutting
edge technology that defines the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center
on Technology Transfer.
