About

🧔🏻 Bio

Organic, farm-raised human. With an interactive journalism degree, and three years of experience managing design, development, and product engagements, I bring my storytelling and engineering background to each project. I’m as comfortable discussing complex API integrations as I am editing impactful copywriting. I’m a Certified Professional of Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) and I work every day to make the web a more equitable place.

Originally from a soybean farm in Maryland, I now live and work in Washington, DC. At Viget, I lead digital engagements for clients like the Human Rights Campaign, Arcadia, and the NFL Players Association.

❤️ Philosophy

I believe in doing good, and doing it well.

Clear, transparent communication.

When working with clients and internal teams, I tell the truth – and I expect the same of others. I sleep best after sending a well-worded email, GitHub issue, project plan, or meeting recap.

Hands-on collaboration.

Project management isn’t just telling people what to do. Often, it’s doing the work alongside the team. In the last year, I've made 677 GitHub contributions (mostly tickets & simple PRs) and made countless design tweaks in Figma. I’m a digital generalist with a Google Calendar habit.

Digital accessibility.

I believe that the digital world is for all people - including those with physical, mental and economic barriers to access. Accessibility is an equity challenge that can only be met with knowledge. I’m a Certified Professional of Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) and I’m working toward a certification as a Web Accessibility Specialist. At Viget, I lead accessibility QA to WCAG 2.1 standards, and advocate for testing across device tiers.

LGBTQIA+ inclusion.

I care about making the world a better place for LGBTQIA+ people to live and work. Together with queer colleagues, I've worked to increase the visibility of LGBTQIA+ people at Viget and even led a lunch discussion on queer identity.
