Why did you become a peer mentor? I was a physical therapist before my accident, and with a tremendous amount of knowledge of healthcare and also being a yoga instructor vested in Eastern medicine tradition, becoming a quadriplegic was just another piece of the puzzle of my life story. I have a lot of knowledge to share and a lot of individuals living with paralysis that might need information they might not get otherwise. I try to be a beacon of light and a source of positive exploration within one's own through traversing the challenges of paralysis.
