In 2012 I suffered a life changing spinal cord injury leaving me with 15% muscle function but an open mind, asking new questions and igniting a newfound perspective, passion for life, health, relationships and meaningful work. As a speaker and pharmacist I am motivated to help others live more healthful, purposeful, courageous, fulfilling lives. Join me as I explore the journeys of people finding the magic in the messiness, everyday heroes and leaders they share insights and perspectives to inspire us to take action, be more present and to live fully.

    EP38 - Diverse Ability, not Disability

    EP38 - Diverse Ability, not Disability

    I’ve been avoiding making this episode. I don’t necessarily believe in disability, I believe in people and people have diverse abilities.

    The thing that enables or disables any individual is the environment in which they exist. The legal, cultural, social, physical, mental, emotional environments we live and work in are the places that either dampen our potential or allow us to flourish. Check out this short episode to hear my thoughts.
