Witnessing firsthand how these products could enhance someone's life and provide a sense of independence was a heartwarming reminder of the power of thoughtful design.

The journey with Kathleen, Chuck, and Jacqueline underscored the importance of staying connected to the human element in design. While technicalities and business aspects may often dominate discussions, this encounter brought back the intrinsic purpose – to create solutions that genuinely improve lives.
