Testimonials

Through her strategic thinking, thorough guidelines/presentations, and well-organized training, Michele helped teams be more empathetic and considerate of accessibility needs from the very start.

Victoria Suwardiman
UX Researcher & Strategist

Probably the most valuable lesson has been a complete change in perspective: that good products, experiences and design are those that are usable and useful for everyone, and that accessibility can drive the thinking behind all of that.

Paul H. Smith
UX Designer & Product Strategist

She brought a clear vision and a scalable plan for making the digital portfolio accessible. While her focus and passion was for UX research, she made time to support and consult with our massive design team through a series of open office hours.
