axe-con speaker in 2023

Pronouns: She/Her

I was first introduced to web accessibility in 2002 while managing a website for a contractor to the U.S. federal government. Inspired by the way digital equality can enrich the lives of people of all abilities, I joined Deque in 2011 to make digital accessibility my full-time focus.

My passion is helping organizations improve the accessibility and usability of their web and mobile content. It’s always a great day when I help clients find effective, efficient, practical solutions to real-life challenges, working side-by-side with professionals in all stages of the development process including program management, product owners, planning, UX/design, content, development, and testing. I do this through design, design system, code, and application reviews; remediation guidance; research; problem-solving; mentoring; and training.

I’ve had the privilege of working with organizations large and small across a variety of industries including financial, insurance, health, education, retail, and technology.
