I’ve helped various UX and design teams refine their designs to make their interfaces more inclusive of a wider range of users, marrying cutting-edge techniques with semantic, accessible front-end foundations. You can check out some of my previous work and read a little bit about my process here.
I want to make a difference. I want to help make the Web better for everyone. And I want to help make a change in the world, to the better of everyone living in it. If your company is working on a product that makes people's lives better in any aspect and in any way, or if you are working to help make the planet a better place for everyone living on it — humans and beyond, and you need someone to help you build or rebuild an online presence that is people-, developer- and future-friendly, I would love to help you.
I also run public and in-house workshops about front-end development and building more inclusive user experiences for everyone. Companies such as the Royal Schiphol Amsterdam Airport and Netflix have trusted me to educate their front-end design and development teams on various front-end topics such as SVG and CSS. If your company could benefit from one of my workshops, I’d love to come in and spend a productive day with your team to get up-to-speed with the latest in the field.
Sara possesses a near-boundless curiosity, a peerless intellect, and some of the best communication skills I’ve seen in our industry. She’s also one of the finest, friendliest people I’ve ever met. I’ve watched her unpack gnarly, technical concepts in countless articles and conference talks, and I’m constantly awed at her ability to make even the most tangled specification more approachable to the rest of us. What’s more, it’s rare to find someone who cares equally deeply about accessibility and cutting-edge code; thankfully, Sara’s able to marry the two in everything she does, and artfully so.
Our industry is better for Sara’s work, her voice, and her passion. Heck, my work is better for her work. I’m proud to consider her a colleague, and would leap at the chance to collaborate with her on a project.—Ethan Marcotte, Designer & Author of “Responsive Web Design”
When you work with Sara, you get her vast knowledge of coding best practices, accessibility expertise, and cutting edge approaches.

Sara doesn’t come without a price tag. But it's worth it.Up to date I have not worked with a freelancer so open-minded, innovative and not afraid to challenge client’s work as Sara. And best of all, it’s not just “talk”… but also “walk”.
