ABOUT GENEVIEVE - OWNER  

Adaptive Technology Solutions

My Story  

Hi, I’m Genevieve McLachlan, owner of Adaptive Technology Solutions Ltd.

I work with individuals who struggle to use their computer, read print or who may prefer dictating rather than typing by off­ering assessments and training.

I was inspired to start my own business after spending many years working in the Disability Sector and realizing there was no one agency providing a holistic approach to assessment and training for people with multiple disabilities.

I grew up with Cerebral Palsy and a vision impairment, so I understand the difficulties faced by people with multiple health issues. 

I use assistive technology on a daily basis to enable me to run a successful business. Having lived my whole life with the effect of disability, I relate well to others and am able to assess their needs with compassion and experience 

I’m passionate about accessibility in general and through a contract with Be.Lab I also work with businesses and organisations wanting to make sure they’re fully accessible for the 24% of us who live with some form of disability or impairment.

I have won numerous business awards and in 2016 I was named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours as a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for Services to People with Disabilities.

As well as running my Adaptive Technology Solutions business, I also teach people how to use essential oils to get rid of toxins & manage their physical & emotional health. Learn more about that here.
 
Outside work I'm a member of two Toastmasters clubs. I'm a member of two book groups as I love reading. I also enjoy cooking; listening to good music; catching up with family and friends; going to the park with my guide dog, and getting out on my walking bike to keep fit. I attend FXU Vibration fitness training twice a week as part of keeping myself fit and mobile.
