With 20+ years of experience in research and academic environments, I have an enthusiastic appreciation for the power that research and education have to improve lives and the world we live in. I believe in using an empathetic approach that values those with lived experience in order to collaborate and co-create positive societal change.

As a member of READ, I co-develop ideas with colleagues, researchers, and community partners, help bring ideas to life as projects that address real-world accessibility issues, and build community.

I live with visible and non-visible disabilities and am passionate about the role universal design can play in making the world more accessible and equitable for all.
