Lisa Willard is a 22-year-old woman who makes pet products for her business, Paws Pleas. Despite having cerebral palsy, she is actively involved in the business. Through the use of assistive devices, Willard can express herself verbally and control the power on things like a sewing machine and a food processor. Here, she is able to turn pages on a storybook program that runs through a nearby laptop computer by activating a switch near her headrest.
