Tracy Keninger is the director of the Rural Solutions Program and Assistive Technology Center. She has been working at Easter Seals Iowa for over 20 years now, where she began as a Direct Support Professional.
Tracy desired to share a message with the FIND community, "My first introduction to assistive technology (AT) was when I was growing up on the farm. My father was a farmer and Veteran with a disability, so we were constantly experimenting with different tools and adapting them for his use. I learned early on that at the end of the day, there is always a way to get things done – this has inspired me throughout my whole career. I also learned that when one family member has a disability, it affects not only that person, but the entire family. That’s why at Easter Seals, we strive to support the whole family alongside the individual.
I am honored to serve in this role, and look forward to connecting more families with accessibility resources and increasing AT use among Iowans."
