About Me

We all have a story to share. And the truth is, most nonprofits struggle to survive.

My story is no different.

I've sweated blood, not to mention exhausted my financial savings supporting our one-in-a-million guide dog school to survive, and thrive.

A proud, non-profit organization that supports blind, deaf/blind, and partially sighted people with the life skills they need to achieve confidence, independence, and autonomy. 

But, disability inclusion and accessibility is a rough, long-term journey, isn't it?

So, how did I end up as a disability consultant writing about disability?

My dream was to kickstart a guide dog school in Greece. After a few brutal attempts, I accepted the in-my-face fact: I failed.

But, the International Guide Dog Federation, noticed my efforts, and a small guide dog school from Switzerland, VBM, reached out. 

I said yes because partly because I desperately wanted to stop hearing my mom say, "Put on a sweater, it's cold outside" even though it was summer in Greece but mostly because I was disgusted by the way blind people were treated like people who had a contagious disease.

Fast-forward two decades later and Lara Guide Dog School in Athens is going strong, despite Greek financial misery, and a pandemic behind us.

Two years ago, I decided to step down.

My son was diagnosed with epilepsy turning my world upside down.

Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism were added to the diagnosis.

And the truth?

I knew there was still so much work to do.

People with disabilities are disabled by society.

While the business world ignores them.

The point?

We have a responsibility.

Now, I'm using my precious skills to empower disability awareness, accessibility, and inclusion in the business world.

Warm wishes from Basel.
