Bio: in my own words (see bonus short version, below)
I am a Senior Front-End Engineer at Deque Systems, where I work on the axe-core team focusing on accessibility test integrations into web developer tooling. I’m passionate about improving the web for people with disabilities and I often go to conferences to speak about it. My blog, Accessibility Wins, highlights accessible user interfaces and tools, contributing a positive voice to the web development space. In 2016, O’Reilly presented me with a Web Platform Award for my work in accessibility.
I’m a co-leader of the Accessibility Seattle Meetup, and I recently started a coding club in my city of Bellingham for Girl Develop It. For two years I co-organized the Seattle chapter of Girl Develop It, a nonprofit encouraging women to learn about software. I’ve also worked closely with the Angular team at Google, contributing full-time accessibility expertise to the Angular Material project for nearly a year.
I’m inspired by nature, street art, typography and music and I try to appreciate life’s ups and downs. I’m also pretty hooked on riding my bike outside.
