Braitmayer, FAIA, offers the unique combination of her professional expertise as a registered architect along with her personal experience as a lifelong wheelchair user. She has made accessibility consulting and design services her focus since 1990 and founded Studio Pacifica, Ltd., in 1993.
She regularly advises state agencies, local governments, school districts, other architects, and home builders and owners on accessibility under various laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Housing Act, and on compliance with state codes in housing, commercial, retail, institutional, and educational projects. Karen served as a member of the Washington State Building Code Council from 1994 to 2001 and remains active in the development and update of Washington State’s accessibility code.
On September 14, 2010, President Obama appointed her to the U.S. Access Board, an independent federal agency that provides leadership in accessible design under the ADA and other laws. Its governing board is structured to function as a coordinating body among federal agencies and to directly represent the public, particularly people with disabilities.

DriveSharp Brain Fitness Training
DriveSharp brain fitness software is clinically proven to make people safer drivers. It includes the three visual processing exercises from the InSight visual processing program that are most important for driving.
Benefits of the DriveSharp program
- Speeds visual processing and increases “useful field of view,” so drivers see more of the road with each glance
- Decreases reaction time, so drivers can stop 22 feet sooner at 55 mph
- Cuts at-fault crash risk by 50%
These improvements often make drivers feel surer behind the wheel, giving them the confidence to drive in unfamiliar places and difficult conditions.
DriveSharp is the shortest brain training program offered by Posit Science. It has 10 hours of content split into 20-minute training sessions. Of course, if you prefer to train for longer or shorter periods, or work for more than 10 hours, you can do that. It’s designed to fit your schedule.
As with all Posit Science programs, DriveSharp adapts to your unique level so that you’re always working your brain at the optimal level. The program also helps you understand your progress by giving examples relating your individual improvement to driving and other real-life scenarios.
