Hi! I'm Beverley
I'm an accessibility lead and front-end developer. My current role is Accessibility Lead at the UK Ministry of Justice, which I've had since April 2021.
I also do a lot of volunteering. I currently volunteer on the dev team of Three Rings CIC. We provide volunteer management software for organisations like the Samaritans and Childline, at low cost to them. In the past, I've set up and run codebar Oxford for 2 years, and taught on Code First: Girls courses, to try and help diversity the tech industry.
In my spare time, I like to give the occasional tech talk, and write the odd blog post. I also sew (I am obsessed with Drag Race), and go out on long rides on the motorbike. My pronouns are they/them.
