Meet the AMP Team

The Alternate Media Production (AMP) Team is here to ensure that students have equal access to information through the use of Assistive Technology and conversions of printed course materials into accessible formats. They work on providing and editing various types of alternate media that include, but are not limited to, electronic text, audio, and large print that are specific to each student's disability needs.

I enjoy contributing to the cause of making education more accessible for diverse student groups. Plus, it's very therapeutic to just turn up your volume, immerse yourself in the music, and forget about everything at the moment but focus on editing a pdf file. Fun fact: I used to live in Thailand for two years in my sophomore high school year so I know how to speak a little bit of Thai.
