An overdue introduction

Hello all,

I was pleased a few weeks ago to receive the notification that I had
been accepted as a member of the GNOME Foundation.  It's an honor and a
privilege to be associated with an organization that has such strong
ideals and great successes.  And each day that I work with GNOME, I'm
humbled to be a part of this great organization.

So, who am I?  Honestly, there's so many parts to this organization that
I haven't had a chance to meet you all in the various projects.  My
primary focus is with GNOME-A11y.  And why?  Because I'm visually
impaired and want to make sure I can still use the computer as my vision
loss progresses.

I'm not a developer by any stretch of the imagination and my focus has
been on advocacy and promotion.  I recently travelled with the A11y team
to the CSUN Accessibility Technology Conference/GNOME A11y Hackfest and
truly had a great time getting to know everyone face to face.

Though I've participated in team activities for about 2 years now, I
recently started looking at formalizing the work I've done with the
hopes of expanding advocacy and spreading the word that GNOME is a very
*VIABLE* option for accessibility needs.  I hope to interface with
interface with many of you as my efforts begin to solidify.

Outside of GNOME, I also participate in the openSUSE Project as a Board
Member as well as Lead for the openSUSE Marketing Team.

Many thanks again, for allowing me to be a part of this great
