Did you know that 1 in 5 people have some type of disability? As a UX Designer, I'm an advocate for all users—even users with disabilities. I've been working with digital accessibility for about 4 years and had the priviledge of leading several initiatives within companies.

I'm a strong believer that the best UX involves designing and developing with accessibility in mind. This ensures products are findable, usable, useful, and ultimately desirable. Businesses that focus on accessibility are more likely to be innovative, build brand loyalty, and yield a better ROI (not to mention avoid ADA litigation).
