about

Hello! I'm studying human centered software and UX design with a focus in healthcare and accessibility. I'm extremely passionate about healthcare, in particular patient experience. I'm most interested in long term patients who will always need to interact with the healthcare system and people with disabilities for whom assistive technologies can make everday tasks significantly easier. This website is completely keyboard and screen reader navigable, and all colors comply with 508 accessibility recommendations.
