Hello. I build websites with accessibility in mind.

I am a WordPress theme developer and an active member of the theme review team. I have a passion for WordPress and building inclusive websites that are accessible to all users. So much so, I recently became a certified DHS Section 508 Trusted Tester.

About me

I started building websites  after I enrolled in a class at the local design school which was a birthday gift  from my husband. I won a web design contest and hired by a local electronic store soon after I graduated. Fast forward 15 years, I still enjoy learning and building websites everyday. 

My current passion is accessibility. During the pandemic, I realize how important it is for everyone to be able to access information, regardless of their age and abilities. In 2021, I became a certified DHS Section 508 Trusted Tester. I have built two WordPress accessible-ready themes. I enjoy contributing to open source, mainly WordPress. I am a member of the WordPress theme review team and contribute 8 hours every week.
