She serves as a core instructor for CDS’s Disability and Diversity Certificate Program. Dr. Conway received her doctorate in Special Education from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2001. While at Berkeley, she became increasingly aware of the problems facing individuals with disabilities as they pursue higher education and employment, leading to her interest in improving postsecondary education and employment options and supports for individuals with disabilities. Dr. Conway served as co-PI on a disability and employment project, EmployAble: World Without Barriers. Dr. Conway also has strong interests in disability studies as it relates to law and public policy, sociology, poetry and other creative works, and technology.
Dr. Conway has published numerous articles and given national and international presentations focused on employment, postsecondary education access, special education, self-advocacy, technology, and dual sensory loss. She worked for several years in the United Kingdom as a consultant about the needs of people with dual sensory loss, and as a result of her work had the opportunity to meet other people with disabilities in the U.K. and continental Europe. She enjoys living and working in Hawaii, and particularly enjoys the beautiful weather and landscape that allow her to pursue her favorite outdoor activities year-round.
