You want a business that's inclusive and accessible to all.
Hi, I'm Katie
I'm a musician-turned accessibility expert. And I'm passionate about making the digital market a place for everyone!
Seven years ago, I was living my dream. I was working as a professional, full-time flutist in the Army Band, regularly performing and seeing the world…doing exactly what I had always dreamed of!
Until everything changed.
I was diagnosed with multiple disabilities , and it ended my career. My life was turned completely upside down and I quickly had to re-learn how to navigate the world to now accommodate my new needs.
Eventually I reacclimated, adjusted, and started a second career. As someone who has always been artistic, I found my way to working in a variety of creative spaces including graphic design, community engagement, and marketing.
And while I loved still being able to utilize my creativity, it became blatantly clear that the world (especially the professional one) simply was not built for people like me.
Those with disabilities.
Anyone in the margins.
I felt like the world that was once at my fingertips was now miles away. Even simple things like navigating a website was difficult because the design and function didn't work with my assistive tech. Living on disability benefits meant paying for products or services was a delicate balance. Even working with a coach became impossible because they didn't create spaces for me to thrive.
Even though I saw so much innovation and opportunity happening around me as the digital education space blew up, I literally couldn’t even access or benefit from any of the amazing things people were creating thanks to my new set of needs.
And I’m not the only one.
By building your business in a way that is truly accessible and inclusive to everyone you'll be able to:
Expand your reach instead of automatically excluding nearly 40% of your people
Which will then allow you to grow faster
Which also means your income will be able to grow as well
So you can finally have the impact you want.
Fun facts about me
I'm a proud Army veteran and a current Navy spouse.
My Appalachian roots run deep in the hills of West Virginia - The outdoors are where I’m most at home, and I hike every single chance I get! I’m also an adaptive athlete (CrossFit).
My partner in crime is my twin sister - adoption gave us a home filled with love!
We look nothing alike, but our personalities are both electric.
When I’m not outside hiking or cuddling my cat, you can usually find me curled up with a good book or binging true-crime!
My secret talent is searching for hidden treasures! I can't resist a good antique shop.
