Inaccessible healthcare communication, such as using unqualified interpreters or paper and pen writing to communicate with deaf patients, is considered malpractice. Healthcare will not be equal and accessible until we see diversity and representation of deaf professionals and professionals with disabilities at the table everywhere in the healthcare system. Give us a seat, we've always been ready.
Three words to describe me:
innovative, ambitious, and optimistic
The best part of my job:
working to create a new, fully accessible healthcare platform for the deaf community!
Something that would surprise others about me:
I've traveled to over 25 countries, skydived in Argentina, biked down the world's most dangerous road in Bolivia, camped out in a desert in Morocco, and more! It is always wonderful meeting deaf individuals from all over the world.
