I want to give back to my community. I was injured and became a wheelchair user 30 years ago (just weeks after the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act). Over the years, I was busy working, raising my two daughters and advocating for accessibility and inclusion in any way I could on my own. Now it’s time to lend my lived experience, energy and acquired knowledge to an exceptional organization that provides advocacy, resources, and peer support to thousands of individuals with diverse challenges. I feel that the more connections we can make, the more we can shine a light on real community needs, lower access barriers, enable independence and keep inclusion at the forefront.
