Click here to read Scott & Sarah's bio.
Sarah Pruett, MOT, OTR/L, CAPS is a registered and licensed occupational therapist, and Scott Pruett, MS is a wheelchair user due to quadriplegia from a skiing accident in 1999. They started The Universal Design Project after several years of consulting about universal design and accessibility in the for-profit sector, in which they assisted businesses and organizations with education about universal design and its implementation in Virginia, across the United States, and as far away as The Republic of Georgia.

Sarah has experience working in clinical rehabilitation settings, primarily with patients with physical disabilities, where she discovered a passion for helping patients and families with home modifications following crisis health events. Scott has served as a research associate during his graduate work in therapeutic recreation to investigate parent perspectives of community recreation opportunities for their children with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

They both have volunteered for various organizations that serve people with disabilities, including The Adaptive Sports Center of Crested Butte (in Colorado), Joni and Friends’ Pennsylvania office, and the Shenandoah Valley Inclusive Wellness Coalition. They both serve on the Virginia Assistive Technology Advisory Council and are part of Google’s Accessibility Trusted Tester program.

Additionally, Scott is president of the Board of Directors of Valley Associates for Independent Living, the Center for Independent Living that serves the western part of Virginia, and Sarah is the co-leader of Through The Roof, a disability ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
