At 19, I was your typical San Diego State University sophomore. Friends, sports, fraternity and most importantly, perfect 20/20 vision. Then it happened with no warning, no time to prepare, life began to blur. Over two short months I lost central vision in my right eye, followed closely by my left. The diagnosis: a rare genetic disorder called Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), a disease with no treatment and no cure in sight. At first, I thought losing my vision meant forfeiting my life. But I soon learned that with every challenge comes an opportunity for greatness. With some hard work and dedication, a year after losing my sight I was able to win the World Blind Golf Championship. All while advocating for changing perceptions of disability through features on CNN.com, MTV's True life, ESPN.com & ABC 20/20.
Now, I empower audiences all over the world, spreading my story of turning trauma into triumph and how to live a limitless life. My mission is to help people realize the potential in obstacles and see challenges as opportunities for success. Although I cannot see my audiences, in each presentation I help them see how to effect positive change into their own lives. I have had the honor of speaking to companies such as Aflac, Baracuda Networks, Honda, Kaiser, John Hancock, Wells Fargo, and many more.
