About Anu Pala

Anu Pala is an Accessibility Consultant, Certified Life Coach, Trainer, and Public Speaker who has worked Social Services for over 20 years in the areas of post vision loss rehabilitation, assistive technology training and career development. She has also worked on various media and public relations initiatives including radio broadcasting, freelance writing and public speaking.

In 1991, Anu lost her vision due to a retinal detachment. Despite this setback, she has not allowed it to define her, but rather uses it to fuel her towards meaningful work-to inspire and educate the public into seeing ability rather than disability. As an ethnic woman living with vision loss, Anu values diversity, inclusion, and equality for all. Her philosophy in life is to experience life with enthusiasm, positivity and a glass half-full attitude.
