Advocacy opportunities are endless!
When I was 19 years old I was the victim of an armed robbery and was shot in the back. I have had a T10 complete spinal cord injury for the last 31 years. I finished college and a Masters in Social Work. I also worked in Physical Rehabilitation Hospitals for 20 years. I raised 3 kids that are now 24, 21 and 18 years old. I have worked for Numotion for 3 years in sales. I love advocacy and try to do it on a local level and a national level as much as possible. I was Ms. Wheelchair Louisiana over the last year and that has given me even more opportunity to talk about issues that impact people with disabilities. On August 4th, 2018 I won Ms. Wheelchair America 2019, and I am honored and thrilled! My platform is to increase access to technology that helps keep people with disabilities healthy! My website will be live in a week, www.MsKarenRoy.com. Please follow my advocacy journey this year!
