My Life Story in 250 Words

Born 13 weeks early at two pounds and with Cerebral Palsy, my parents were told “put her in a wheelchair and forget about her.  She will never walk or talk.”  Always up for a challenge, I have proven the naysayers wrong.  I walk (tap dance!), it’s hard to get me to stop talking, and I hope to make an unforgettable good impression on all those I meet. 

The hospital is my second home, but I much prefer life outside those sterile walls in Alexandria, VA.  

With an insatiable desire to travel the world, I spend most of my money gallivanting around the globe and visiting those I cherish. 

Attending University of Richmond was the second best decision of my life.  Following Jesus, the first. Both decisions have shaped who I am and how I view life.  My heart was full and then it shattered. Never giving up, I am no stranger to difficulty and press on.  

A daddy’s girl who loves sports, singing, laughing, lounging on the beach with a fruity drink in hand, and chasing after big dreams.  One who dreams of the day I will marry my “teammate” and raise children and a dog – life would be incomplete without a dog.   

I walk with canes, but my disability does not define me. I want most to be defined by the way I love Jesus, people, and my passions.  

Sometimes I feel left behind, but in reality, life is just beginning.
