About me...
After a tragic drunk driving accident paralyzed me from the chest down, 15 years later, I am now a thriving C5-C6 quadriplegic, focused on taking my misfortune and turning it into a valuable and positive life changing experience. My reign as Miss Wheelchair Wisconsin 2000-2001 and platform "the consequences of drinking and driving" jump started my career as a motivational, inspirational and educational speaker. Today, I usemy platform to bring awareness and educate others on such issues as, drinking and driving, unhealthy and abusive relationships, living life after a traumatic injury, wheelchair accessibility and inclusion. My ultimate goal is to change the views of a society filled with stereotypes and misperceptions of women in wheelchairs and disabilities in general. "I am using my experience to empower the human spirit and inspire others, disabled or able-bodied, to discover their own inner strengths.

Hi Jenny,

Welcome to the Employment Network! I work with Jolene at ERI, but out of our office in Madison.   I'm really looking forward to having you be a part of our community.  Thanks for sharing your story.  Your mission to change stereotypes is one many of us on this network share.  We should really talk about this some time.
