Hi, I’m Ani G.
I am a Geriatric Social Worker designing environments, systems, and services to be inclusive to older adults and people living with disability. I operate my own consulting company positioned as a bridge between Aging and Disabled communities and people intending to design with and serve them. I also work to bring people into these spaces. This allows me to work with all different people and inject elements of inclusive and universal design into different places.
Aside from a niche perspective, my social work is rooted in community organizing and clinical therapy. I bring people together across fragmented industries to translate a common language and facilitate common goals, building systems level solutions.
