2022 exit thoughts & welcome 2023

As 2022 is ending, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has made this year outstanding.

To my allies in advocacy and accessibility: Together we have removed barriers, challenged old school thinking, pushed back when our lives, goals, dreams, accommodations, and more were denied whether through lack of knowledge/awareness or hostility. We have been side by side on the journey of advocacy and I feel truly lucky to know and work with each one of you. An extra thanks goes out to those who were involved personally in my endeavors (adventures) in 2022, there are too many of you to name but you know who you are! Thank you, sincerely.

To my clients: You brought me into projects with open minds and hearts. You are amazing, and each one of you brought me gifts of knowledge, hope, and joy. Nothing makes my soul sing more than working with someone who is truly engaged and interested in accessibility. It really is easy to change our world and make it more inclusive through thoughtful action! We have had many beautiful and passionate conversations this year! You are driving a change that is long overdue for people living with disabilities. Thank you for trusting me as your consultant, for trusting the process and opening your mind to universal design. I know it was not always easy to work through some of the discomforts of changing how you think about design, systems, and operations.  Congratulations on every one of your successful builds in 2022, and I cannot wait to leap into exciting new projects with you in 2023!

Beautifully Inclusive is also excited to announce a rebrand in the new year (2023)! Beginning as a small passion project, our brand was simplistic. Beautifully Inclusive has since grown into so much more, and it felt like it was time to let the brand grow too!  You will see that exciting refresh happen soon. It will be the same heart filled accessibility consulting business with a fresh new look.

Thanks for all the business and great conversations! Wishing you all a very happy new year, and hope that 2023 is a year of continued growth, thoughtfulness, and change toward inclusivity!
