I’m here to represent a journey that’s shaped my life and ignited a passion within me. It all started on a fateful day, May 24th, 1999. At just 18 years old, I found myself facing a fractured neck from a car accident. Little did I know, life had more challenges in store for me.

Fast forward to December 28th, 2002. Another car accident, another fracture. But this time, it was different. I became a C 4-7 quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down, with only the ability to speak. Life threw curveballs my way – a house fire in January 2009, losing everything; driving off a wheelchair lift in April 2013, fracturing my forehead and breaking both legs in two places; even being hit by a car in my wheelchair in August 2020. But through it all, I’ve clung to positivity, pressing forward with resilience.

Today, I’ve revamped myself as The ABLER, fueled by a witty personality , optimistic spirit and an unwavering passion for helping others, especially those in the disabled community. I want to empower lives and continue unleashing independence for myself and others. I will do this by sharing personal, social and professional content that will hopefully inspire you to do more and be more. Your input/interaction is greatly welcomed.
