Grace is the co-founder of Open Style Lab, an organization that seeks to make functional, stylish clothing for people with disabilities. Born and bred in Singapore, she came to the U.S. for a Harvard/MIT PhD in health sciences and technology. Creating Open Style Lab fulfilled a childhood dream of being a fashion designer, while leveraging her medical training. The part she loves most about her job is connecting occupational therapists, engineers and fashion designers - three typically disparate fields - to create wearable solutions with and for people with disabilities.
