Our speaker was Krista Allison, Ms Wheelchair Ohio 2022.  Krista has a bachelor's in criminal justice, and a master's degree in management and public administration from the University of Phoenix.
Krista was born with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disorder, which is a rare neuropathy, and there are approximately 6,000 people worldwide with the variant she has.
She was able to walk until she was 22 years old when she got pregnant, and six months into the pregnancy lost her ability to walk, and was paralyzed from the neck down for a while, but regained some strength after a couple of years.
When she finally came to terms with having the disease she came across the Ms Wheelchair competition, and decided that was something she wanted to do.  Ms Wheelchair is not a pageant, but based on advocating efforts of disabled women.  She will be attending the national competition next week (stay tuned for a link to vote for her).
She volunteers with Youth Challenge, and also advocates for accessibility when not working at her job.  Accommodations range from accessible playgrounds, for example in Brunswick and the new one planned for the Strongsville Town Center, to much simpler things like bathroom doors that open out, so people in a wheelchair and enter and close the door behind them.
