My most recent assignment for the Vehicle Production Group was to meet with several of our dealers and work on a plan to assist in hitting our targeted audience for sales: the disability community. But, this experience turned out to be so much more rewarding then just talking about selling vehicles. For those of you that follow us, you know that as a company, the Vehicle Production Group is not just focused on selling our cars, but rather, our goal is to change lives. We are...Read Full Post »

This month has been full of planning for the 2011 Abilities Expo show season which will start in April in Los Angeles, California.

The featured article that was printed this month was in Sports N' Spokes Magazine about my Costa Rican Adventure with the Ocean Healing Group JAWS- 7 camp. Here is the link for that article as well as the manuscript.

Thanks to your generous donations and sponsorship from an amazing sponsor (Thanks Brian), I was able to end this amazing year with a trip to Costa Rica with the Ocean Healing Group to surf with two amazing kids, and the OHG family for the JAWS- 7 camp.
This was a magical, and life-changing trip that was very enriching for all who were a part of it. We spent a week on the Nicoya Peninsula, in the town of Playa Hermosa at Shaka Beach Retreat. This was an ama...Read Full Post »

September has been my month to catch up on everything that fell behind throughout my reign as Ms. Wheelchair America.

I am happy to say that I am already booked up for October, with the Atlanta Abilities Expo on the 14th, a speaking engagement in Charlotte about disability employment, and then in November I am headin...Read Full Post »

On August 9th, I traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan to embark on another amazing week with some of the most amazing women I have ever met, at the Ms. Wheelchair America 2011 pageant.

All of the girls were able to bond and spend time together throughout the week while going on scavenger hunts ar...Read Full Post »

This month I was ready for some rest and relaxation before Nationals! I was able to travel to New York to visit some family and friends for a couple of weeks and then return home to prepare for my last week of being a title holder. It is kind of bittersweet. I am looking forward to passing along the title to another deserving young woman and allowing her to have this adventure. But, I am a little sad to see this chapter close because of all of the memories that I have ...Read Full Post »

I am so thankful for their generosity in getting me to the event!
At both, I shared my story and stressed to both groups how thankful we...Read Full Post »

We all get so close to eachother throughout the shows that it is always hard to say goodbye, but we always know that we will see eachother at the next show.
At this show, I received my kit from Lega Wear and became an o...Read Full Post »
