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 Staff Engineer on the Open Source team at Gatsby, leveraging my accessibility knowledge to implement accessible solutions at the framework level and making it easier to build an accessible site out of the box. 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.
