Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, my Yellow Brick Road has been filled with several challenges. In my story, the hurricane is a car accident that rendered me paraplegic. As a single mom of a 16 months old boy that was hard to take in! But the real crash happened five years later when I realized I couldn’t keep up with my previous lifestyle.
I struggled for many years until I started to share my stories! Storytelling gave me an interesting perspective on parenting, disability and life as a whole. Through impactful and inspirational speaking engagements, I have learned to share about how certain events shape our perspective, the lessons we can gain and how we connect with others.
My stories come from both personal and professional experiences. I offer an interesting perspective as a person living with an acquired disability and a professional who dedicated her career to advocating for and offering support to parents with an intellectual, learning or cognitive disability.
When Life throws us a curve ball, we can either plow through or stop, breathe and re-calibrate… or both!
We are stronger than we think! The secret tool that helped me bounce back after sustaining a spinal cord injury.
