I am the advocate for travelers with disabilities when they encounter problems using our airports, have problems with receiving an accommodation from the airlines or feel they did not receive the level of service they are entitled too.
I work closely with the airlines and their wheelchair service providers on issues that come up from time to time. I hold regular meetings with airlines, providers and other airport community members to address disability related issues that come up, foster communication, and share experiences and concerns. We also address ways of making service for travelers with disabilities better.
