Welcome to Disabilities Unlimited. This is a project near and dear to me. I was born with arthrogryposis, a muscle and joint disorder. While having a disability limits me, it has never stopped me from doing the things I want to do; only modify how I do them. Each day I wake up, I wake up with a positive attitude, because I can do more with a positive than with a negative one.
Not only does having a disability give me first hand knowledge of the subject, but I strive to do more with that. Over the years, I have worked with many organizations: United Cerebral Palsy in Oshkosh, WI; Big Brothers/Big Sisters in Oshkosh; The Young Artist Workshop. The newest way I have found to be an advocate has been by teaching. With a special education background, I can educate and motivate students with disabilities and I can also educate and motivate other students through interaction.
What better way to share my knowledge than by talking to people. I am a keynote speaker and an award winning columnist using education, humor and positive energy to enlighten others.
