Aimee Blacker // Surfing the Spectrum Seize the Yay

    • Society & Culture

Lovely yayborhood, I hope you’re surviving the final weeks of Winter - I can’t believe how fast the year is going, but I’m so excited we’re inching closer to Spring! Thank you for all the lovely feedback on the past few weeks of episodes and the anonymous Q&A – I’m so glad last week’s fertility and IVF episode helped some of you, wasn’t Erin just an amazing woman?

The adoption episode is coming to you next week, but speaking of incredible women, I’ve squeezed another amazing story in between this week. I heard about today’s guest through her brother who happens to be our editor here at Seize the Yay – HUGE shout out to Sam Blacker at the Podcast Butler if anyone needs anything audio related – he is literally a LIFE SAVER and one of my favourite people, so it's no surprise that his sister Aimee is just as much of a legend.
 
Aimee Blacker started out as a paediatric occupational therapist even after not actually knowing what occupational therapy was until she finished high school. She’s one of those amazing examples of not really knowing where you want to end up meaning you’re open-minded enough to stumble upon where you were supposed to end up all along. She is the Co-founder and Director of Surfing the Spectrum, a not-for-profit Surf Therapy initiative working to positively impact the lives of families, and their children with Autism. In anticipation of their next fundraiser this Saturday 20th August, I just had to scream from the rooftops about the transformative work she and her team are doing so I hope you are as inspired and moved as I am.
