IT'S OFFICIAL! I will be representing TEAM USA this September in Rio for the Paralympics! The privilege of living and training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs combined with years of hard work and the support of family and friends has made my dream a reality!

In October of 2003, a black cloud seemed to hang over our family, which all culminated on a wet, fall day when I was hit and dragged by a pickup truck while riding a Big Wheel type toy at a friend’s birthday party. The medics who arrived on the scene were ready to pronounce me dead due to my horrendous injuries. The impact of the truck was directly to the back of my head; immediately I went into a coma.
