BIO:

Eliza Aierstuck
Eliza has been professionally writing software for the past 5 years and has been writing software that can be used by anyone who wants to use it for about two and a half years. Her interest in web accessibility began as an effort to follow policy, quickly evolved into a desire to make software that could be used by people with disabilities, and eventually became a realization that designing accessible software increases the usability for all users.
