Andrew Crook

Andrew Crook
Accessibility Engineer, CVS Health

Andrew is a Software Engineer with a passion for accessibility, and its positive impact on technology; enabling individuals to have opportunities such as education, employment, independence, and a general quality of life that would previously have been out of reach. Andrew has a unique perspective of accessibility with regards to its relationship with technology due to having a degenerative retinal condition from birth, which has resulted in a slow but continuous loss of vision. Andrew learned to leverage a variety of tools and technology to support a full lifestyle. “My passion for technology is grounded in how it may be leveraged to create life changing impacts for individuals facing many forms of challenges.” Following a career beginning in the financial sector Andrew found a lack of quality resources to be successful and made the decision to shift to a career in technology. Through technology, optimism, and education Andrew shares his story and knowledge to help individuals learn how they may leverage technology and other tools to live a similarly full and independent life.
