VP, Assistive Technologies
Laurie has been with Kinova for over a decade, in fact she was Kinova’s third employee, and has played a key role in the development and global success of Kinova’s Assistive Technologies division.
Laurie studied business at Laval University, with a passion and focus on finding ways in which communities could build centres for families taking care of individuals with limited mobility. A few years into her career, she was introduced to Charles Deguire, and was totally inspired by Kinova’s mission. The rest is history.
Today, Laurie’s day-to-day revolves around strategizing ways to increase the accessibility rates and ease of adoption for end-users. By engaging with end-users, their families and caregivers, as well as collaborating with therapists and medical professionals, Laurie is able to refine our product to meet varying needs and improve the experience for users.
Laurie’s current objectives include changing the paradigm of Assistive Technologies to ensure human mobility is viewed from the framework of one’s entire body, and to increase accessibility and long-term adoption.
