“As an architect with an acquired mobility issue, I understand from everyday experience that accessibility is intrinsic to good design and should not be an afterthought.”
As a licensed architect and certified accessibility specialist, she channels her expertise to help create appealing and highly usable environments for people of diverse abilities.
