Making the web more accessible is my passion.
I have dedicated my career to improving accessibility within my organizations, and I take a multi-pronged approach.

Awareness and Training
Distilling complex accessibility requirements into digestible and actionable knowledge empowers teammates and allows them to integrate accessibility into their roles. Here is a sample of selected trainings delivered on different accessibility topics.
Training: Use of Color
In this presentation I gave an overview of the prevalence of colorblindness, WCAG’s color requirements, and some basics on how to account for contrast in visual content.
- Accessibility and Color (Standard Sway Presentation)
- Accessibility and Color (Accessibility Outline View)
Training: Document Accessibility
Word, PowerPoint, and Adobe PDF documents can be made accessible, with care. This training offers resources on how to own accessibility when creating documents.

- Document Accessibility (Accessibility Outline View)
I have worked with UX designers and software developers alike to analyze their work in progress and annotate them for accessibility.
At Thomson Reuters I was placed on a team building a new product off of a newly launching design system. The task was to figure out how best to integrate accessibility into the UX design process, and I created a slide deck outlining how I did just that.
Testing and Remediation
Through a combination of screen reader testing, automated testing, and simply using the keyboard alone to navigate pages, I offer thorough accessibility audits and offer recommendations for remediation.
