Theresa Mabe is a visually impaired digital accessibility advocate. While pursuing her B.S. in digital media and web technology, she was diagnosed with myopic macular degeneration. The experiences she had in a learning environment that was not designed to accommodate people with sensory impairments drove her to focus her studies on accessible design and theory with regards to the digital landscape.
She is a Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competency by the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) and member of the IT Accessibility Working Group and Digital Strategy group for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Mabe is also the founder of AccessibleInfluence.com, which is a resource, service, and community of content creators who are committed to making the internet more inclusive for those with disabilities by removing digital barriers.
