I am available to speak on a variety of accessibility, disability and inclusion topics. I have presented at conferences in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, primarily on the topic of web accessibility.

I am fully bilingual in English and French.


I train your teams on the topic of accessibility, using a no-nonsense customized approach that fits your requirements. I have conducted training for large and small companies, as well as local, provincial and federal government organisations. I have also worked with tertiary education providers and non-profits.


I work with you and your teams to identify and solve a variety of accessibility issues. This may take the form of:

  • Accessibility assessments (audits)
  • Strategic planning
  • Technical support
  • Training

There are legal, commercial and human reasons to implement accessibility


I also write about web accessibility in different media.


Several of my articles have been published in print and web magazines.


I blog here and as a guest blogger on a variety of topics around accessibility, inclusion and disability.

How-To Manuals

I write simple, clear and concise documentation, presented in accessible formats.
