Accessibility Consulting Services
I have previously worked on accessibility projects for Facebook, the Obama White House, the American Red Cross, and startups. I have also conducted field research on accessible design and assistive technology in Rabat, Morocco and Geneva, Switzerland.

Areas of Expertise
When I'm embedded within a company, I conduct in-depth audits of products, provide recommendations for accessibility priorities, and apply accessibility principles to company guidelines and goals. My consulting speciality is user experience accessibility, which includes the areas below:
User Research and Development
Conducting accessibility audits of products, ranging from one week to one month
Providing recommendations for cross-functional accessibility work on teams
Applying accessible design principles to products so that users with disabilities can have an optimal user experience
Teaching classes to designers on how to use accessibility design tools, such as Sketch plug-ins, color contrast markers, and visual testing tools.
Content Strategy/User Experience Writing
Adding captions and transcripts to videos on digital platforms
Writing content that is appropriate and user-friendly for screen readers
These are some examples, but there are other areas of accessibility that I am trained in and happy to work on depending on the scope of your product.
My approach with each client is tailored to the client's accessibility goals and needs. After initially speaking with the client and understanding their products, I conduct a general accessibility audit of the products to assess the areas of high priority and estimated time and resources that will be needed to pursue these goals.
Universal design is critical and I am passionate about it, so I am always happy to talk about it. If you are interested in hiring me, let's get the conversation started.
