UP-STAND works with businesses, organizations, communities, and elected officials to re-envision the places we work, play, and gather to accommodate children, pregnant women, caretakers, and parents.

    We follow the maternal and children's retail industries, accessibility legislation, and developments in medical research and universal design to create the best strategies that enable your physical spaces, events, and services to become more family-friendly with reasonable accommodations and simple policies. 

    We passionately believe that everyone should have the opportunity to fully participate in and contribute to our society, and that we can provide environments that support this inclusive narrative even with limited time, a small budget, and minimal effort. 


    Christine offers phone, video and email consultations, as well as site visits. She performs data collection via surveys, focus groups, and interviews. Using this information, she provides recommendations to strengthen your accessibility. All plans will be aligned with your goals, budget, and capacity.

    If you think this is for you, then please fill out this form and we will be in touch.
    Our rate is $200 per hour. We extend discounts to return clients and clients who successfully refer us.
