About Jenny

I have a passion for motivating and educating others about living the impossible through my speaking and writing. My desire is to see people of all abilities living a full and active life. I am trained as a counselor and serve as advocate, peer mentor and encourager.


I am a dynamic speaker and love to share my message with students, medical professionals, and faith-based groups. I welcome the opportunity to speak to your group. Contact me here.

A bit more on Jenny

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 and wheelchair rugby are just a few of the ways I enjoy staying physically active.
