BUILDING STRONGER COMMUNITIES BY PROVIDING EXPERT GUIDANCE ON INCLUSION OF PERSONS WITH DIVERSE ABILITIES
Hello <<First Name>>

When the pandemic first unfolded back in March, there were days I feared that the business I had spent two long years building was not going to make it. As a trainer and public speaker, I could not imagine how I would keep my business relevant and sustainable. And what was worse, was the fear and realization that our camp, sport, recreation providers, and our communities would no longer have the bandwidth to focus on inclusion, never mind, deem it a priority.

I found myself at a crossroads a few weeks into the pandemic. I had this realization, and then a commitment, to be agile, pivot and get creative. That, and perhaps serendipity, stepped in to show me newfound connections and opportunities, which ultimately lead to my silver lining. I found myself fully surrounded with new opportunities, possibilities and a chance to prove that Inclusion Is NOT Cancelled; that people with disabilities, now, more than ever, belong

I invite you to take a moment and share in my journey within this new post-Covid world, and the amazing projects that have presented. To all of you that have stuck with me, watched, listened, supported and entrusted me to enhance your inclusion journey, I Thank You!

May your year ahead be embraced with acceptance, support and belonging.
