geekPAK Client Nominated Chicagoan of the Year
Marca Bristo | Access Living
February 14, 2008
Marca Bristo, Access Living's president and CEO, was nominated as a Chicagoan of the Year by Chicago Magazine (January 2008 Issue). Bristo was paralyzed from the chest down at the age of 23 after a 1977 diving accident.
"Bristo has backed ambitious projects for most of her adult life. Two years after her accident, she took the helm of the newly formed Access Living, which, among other accomplishments, has helped push to get wheelchair lifts on Chicago Transit Authority buses and improved accessibility to Chicago public schools." (Chicago Magazine, January 2007)
As one of GeekPAK's newest clients, Access Living is a non-residential Center for Independent Living for people with all types of disabilities. GeekPAK is scheduled to complete their website re-design in early June.
