Portfolio: This woman’s work

The combination web development and accessibility is my passion. The web should be usable for everyone.

Before and during the work on a web project or plugin, I review, consult and research, to make the end result as accessible as it can be for all visitors and users.

Besides my work for the web agency Level Level, I am a trainer for The A11y Collective, an online learning platform for web accessibility.

Certification

With the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) I am registered as a Certified Professional in Web Accessibility (CPWA). In the Netherlands I’m a certified accessible web builder educated by the Dutch Accessibility Foundation.

Accessibility consultancy

At the moment I work as an accessibility consultant for the full service digital agency Level Level. I work on client projects and train my colleagues.

Recent consultancy work for Level Level

  • Education of the designers and developers of Level Level.
  • Internal accessibility auditing of Level Level client work.
  • WCAG-EM Accessibility audits.
  • Research and code reviews for accessible projects of Human Made.
  • Research and code reviews to help keep the WordPress form plugin Gravity Forms WCAG 2.1 AA compliant.

Previous consultancy work

For the Genesis Framework I did an accessibility overhaul to make it WCAG 2.0 AA compliant.  Tenon.io mentioned Genesis as the most accessible WordPress framework in their research in 2018.

Training web accessibility

In 2020 we started the The A11y Collective, an online learning platform for web accessibily, for designers, developers and content creators. But also for site owners, project managers and takeholders.

I gave in-house workshops for companies like  Team Yoast, Yard Internet, Stuurlui, Human Made, Rocketgenius, and Geev vorm.

Web development as a freelancer (before 2018)

Open source contribution

Since 2012 I contribute to the WordPress project. I give presentations and workshops at WordCamps and meetups. If you want to meet me or invite me to speak, please contact me.

Until end 2018 I was an active part of the WordPress Accessibility Team. For this I got props for several WordPress releases and “rockstar” credits for 4.3 & 4.5.

In 2016 Knowbility gave me the Heroes of Accessibility Award for Individual Achievement for my contributions to WordPress.
