I have over a decade of experience working with online media and software companies in U.S. and Canada. I started my career as a web editor at the Denver alt weekly, Westword, then as an interactive producer for the Rocky Mountain News until its closing. I moved into web development in 2010, joining Questrade, a Canadian brokerage firm, as front-end developer and freelancing for various clients. In 2013 I make the decision to move into quality assurance working for companies such as Ping Identity, Kenzan and By The Pixel. My passion for accessibility testing took off when freelancing with Aetna as design QA then coming onboard as an accessibility engineer supporting and advising engineer teams. Currently, I am a quality engineer at Spruce Labs in Denver, creators of Sprucebot, a Guest Experience platform built to enhance human-to-human connections. My experiences in media and tech have given me a passion for building quality and inclusive products for everyone.
Outside of work, you can find me playing backseat detective while watching old episodes of Forensic Files, photographing my cats, Shadowmere and Ms. Etta James and getting really weird with life.
