Pronouns: She/Her

Liz Bottner, a certified Assistive Technology Instructional Specialist (CATIS) and Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (CVRT), currently works as an Assistive Technology Specialist for the National Library Service at the Library of Congress. Liz credits her initial interest in the blindness rehabilitation field to those positive blindness rehabilitation professionals she had in her life early on who helped set her up for success in terms of being able to effectively navigate through the world despite having vision loss.

Liz received her master’s degree in Blind Rehabilitation Teaching with a specialization in Assistive Technology from Northern Illinois University. She currently volunteers her time and expertise with several organizations within the blind and low-vision community, the American Council of the Blind and Penny Forward being two such organizations.

When she is not working, Liz enjoys reading, traveling (New York City is a much-favored destination) and being active. She enjoys running (with and without her Guiding Eyes Running guide dog) and serving as goalie in playing blind hockey, especially for the Hartford Braillers-Connecticut’s blind ice hockey team.
