Doors, doorways, and gates control passage into and throughout a site or building. It is important that they be accessible in order to provide access to the building or room's functions and elements. A matter of a few inches can mean the difference between an accessible door and an inaccessible one. Since every building has at least one door, this is an essential aspect to get right. Inaccessible doors can render a whole building or room inaccessible.

BJ Dietz Epstein holds a master’s degree in architecture (M.Arch) from Iowa State University. The major emphasis of her studies there was accessibility.

She also performs accessibility compliance checks for signage, and consults with museums, parks, and businesses to ensure that they go above and beyond for their patrons with disabilities.
Ms. Epstein brings a passion for accessibility to her work, as well as the ability to translate from legalese into layman’s terms.
