How I Gained My Skills

I began writing accessible HTML in 1999 for a nine library network of Braille and Talking Book Libraries under the supervision of staff who used screen readers to access the Internet.

I served as the website administrator for the Library of Michigan for over 20 years. In 2014, they were the first state library agency required to sign a consent decree with the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division after a web accessibility complaint. I have since implemented, enforced, and revisited methods to maintain digital accessibility in a library environment.
