Legally blind since early childhood and having to walk with a support cane in his right hand and the harness of his “Guiding Eyes” black Labrador, Brandon, in the other, Ethan Holliger has made it his mission to build websites that help all people experience ease and efficiency.
After graduating from the University of Toledo with a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering Technology, Ethan enrolled in the Blind Institute of Technology (BIT) Academy in Denver, Colorado. Following graduation from BIT, he found a perfect job at CVS Health – joining the Accessibility Engineering Solutions team.
“The specific focal point of our work,” Ethan explains, “is building web digital experiences that allow people faster, more reliable and accessible ways to schedule such things as vaccinations, prescription renewals and online orders.”
With the onset of the pandemic and more and more customers and patients now seeking online opportunities, their work has become increasingly valuable.
