Anitra started her career during the dot-com bubble as a front-end web developer and designer. Usability and accessibility were her speciality before those things were cool. (Yes, they're cool.) She was a contributing author of the HTML5 Cookbook book. She was a technical editor of the Universal Design for Web Applications book. She presented at the SXSW Interactive conference in Austin, TX three times and also speaks at local events.
Anitra is active in the technology, agile, and user experience communities in sunny Tampa, Florida. She's currently an Agile Coach and Scrum Master for the Digital and Innovation team at Gerdau, a steel producer that's undergoing a technological and cultural transformation. When she finds the time, she also enjoys traveling and playing board games.
