Accessibility, Sharing the Road, and helping others with spinal cord injuries have become a passion for me now. I have brought StopGap to Huron County and am working to help new construction and renovation projects in the county be accessible to everyone. I am currently a Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification professional.
As a Rick Hansen Ambassador, I will share Rick’s message of Access for All while I weave in my story of recovery and perseverance. Life does change in the blink of an eye and we all need to be ready.
I started writing after being hit by a car and before I left the trauma unit – and I have not stopped since. Blogging about my recovery has been therapeutic and now I hope to write to help those who find themselves in the same situation – there is not a lot of info about recovering from a spinal cord injury and I want to change that.
