At the age of 15, I was diagnosed with cancer and as a result, I had my right leg amputated above the knee. That was 25 years ago! I have spent the last 25 years living life to the fullest. I represented our country in alpine skiing at two Winter Paralypmpics , 1998 Nagano, Japan and 2002 Salt Lake City, Utah. I have coached athletes in alpine ski racing, lacrosse and swimming. I earned my Master's degree in Social Work from Binghamton University and have spent the last 15 years working as a school social worker. I married my high school sweet heart in which we have two beautiful daughters. I picked up the hobby of obstacle course racing and recently set the above knee world record of completing 50 miles in the World’s Toughest Mudder over 24 hours. As an active amputee and knowing first hand the significance of having access to prosthetics I am drawn to the mission of ROMP and the importance of assisting others in finding mobility through access to prosthetic services. I have the privilege and support to live a life without limitations when over 80% of the world’s amputee population does not. ROMP is dedicated to making changes to this area. Being an amputee at times feels like you have to climb a mountain to survive but when you have access to prosthetics, climbing a mountain is not impossible. ROMP will show you! I will show you!
