I am an elite wheelchair racer, Paralympic ambassador, public speaker and assistant professor at Vanderbilt University. I strive for athletic excellence and leading a life filled with integrity. I am the 2011 World Champion in the 200m and hold two bronze medals from the Paralympic Games in Beijing, China. I had the honor of representing Team USA in London at the 2012 Paralympic Games! I am currently focusing on my research on disability identity, inclusion, disability sport and work related to disability activism! Thanks for following me on this incredible journey!

I appreciate your support.
