I have always been a proud self-advocate. At first with proper guidance, and then with experience, I was able to parlay my talents in order to help others. Now, I am a proud consultant helping to further the disability agenda. I have done a great deal of public speaking, have lobbied and befriended legislators, have mentored peers, and have helped to increase visibility for those with disabilities or facing other forms of adversity.
A key turning point in my career took place when a large advertising firm was able to help me become published, and allowed me to give the gift of publication to a number of other authors with disabilities. Through the Stories about Us campaign, we are increasing disability visibility in the key world of publishing, and helping dreams become a reality!
