RssAccessibility Compliance Specialist

In the past few years at the Waltham Verizon Labs I specialized in ADA compliance and I feel that I can make a greater impact in accessibility by joining more active players and nimbler companies. At Verizon I distinguished myself for insight and teamwork, creativity and innovation, leadership and passion, for the support and the solutions technology can provide to people with special needs. I led the company initiative to achieve compliance for Verizon products and services, communicating directly with the customer and working with several cross-functional teams to address and resolve the accessibility problems encountered through the order, installation, and implementation phases of company products and services. I'm fluent with WCAG, Section 508 and Section 255 standard, assistive technology (screen readers, etc.) and automated testing, which allow my audits to be detailed, informational and also educational in those cases where accessibility is not familiar to project managers, designers or developers. My experience in web design and authoring, graphic and user interface design greatly contributes to the implementation of the necessary solutions. My fluency in sign language and Deaf culture facilitates the communication between culturally different groups. I advocated the needs of people with disabilities and the aging population by delivering company-wide presentations and training to improve standards, awareness, and involvement. I have been recognized with several leadership and patent awards, which are a compliment to my dedication and innovative energy.
