About

I have been living life with a spinal cord injury for 29 years.  My hope is to encourage others to embrace and overcome the obstacles in their life and to live life abundantly.

When I was 16 years old, I sustained a C6-7 spinal cord injury, leaving me paralyzed from the chest down. After completing my master’s degree in counseling psychology, I distributed wheelchairs for eight years in developing countries. Currently I work with a non-profit organization supporting our workers while they live overseas. I am also a contributing writer at Bard Care. Rowing on the Ohio River and playing tennis are just two of the ways I enjoy staying physically active.

I post weekly articles on living life fully with a spinal cord injury. Click here to sign up for my email list.

Please contact me if you would like me to speak at an upcoming event at a school, university, civic organization or church.
