Holly Cohen is an occupational therapist who specializes in the use of technology to compensate for impairments an individual with a disability might experience.  With over 20 years of experience, she has started the assistive technology service at NYU Langone Health and DIYAbility, an accessible makerspace in midtown Manhattan.  She is also an adjunct professor at New York University in the occupational therapy program. Holly believes that technology is the great equalizer, allowing people with mixed abilities to become independent in all areas; including teaching people to make and hack their own solutions.  She has lectured nationally and internationally on the use of technology as a medium to facilitate independence, including at the 2016 TED conference in Vancouver.
