Meet Our Founder

" I know what it is like to travel the difficult journey of limb loss without a strong support system. Friendships made through support groups, adaptive sports, and events for the adaptive community became my support system and helped me through my journey and I am forever grateful.

 

I now hope to pay it forward and help others in the limb loss community through their journey of recovery and triumph over adversity. My hope is to discuss the difficult topics that are rarely talked about, but are so vital to the recovery process - self esteem, setting a positive mindset, body image, effects on interpersonal relationships, how to get back to the gym and lead an active lifestyle, nutrition, re-entering the dating world, and getting back to the workforce. "
