I’m Madalyn and I hope you’ll join me in my mission to make the web a more inclusive, safer place.
I’m a Senior Engineer working on the Accessibility Insights team at Microsoft, building Open Source tools that make it easier to know if your app is accessible during development. I manage treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, and ADHD and am incredibly open about my experiences with each. I believe that it’s difficult to be your best self when you stifle parts of your identity so I work hard to be vulnerable and honest about where my brain is at. Social justice and ethics permeate my thoughts and inform the way I choose to interact with the world and how I spend my time, especially in my work.
I like bold coffee, belting out songs in my car (read: box of sound), bunnies, and escaping into books.
