Co-Founder, Pediatric Surgeon
Dr. Julie Sanchez is a pediatric surgeon and the proud mother of a spunky 11-year-old, Alejandro. When she's not in the operating room or at one of Ale's soccer games, she can be found brainstorming ideas for adaptive clothing. So. Many. Ideas.
"As a surgeon, we take pride in great health outcomes. Our metrics are pain control, no infections, no complications, early discharge, and so on. We do not focus enough on how well we empower our patients to succeed in their daily lives once they leave the hospital. This was the motivation for designing our first adaptive item, and the impetus for taking on similar adaptive challenges through what is now our growing company, Abilitee Adaptive Wear."
