Wyoming AgrAbility is honored to team up with Abilities and the Shepard Symposium on Social Justice to bring Ms. Wheelchair USA 2013 to UW.

Ashlee Lundvall is a wife and mother from Cody, Wyoming and an advocate for celebrating accomplishments of women with disabilities. She serves as the secretary for the Wyoming Disabled Hunters Organization Board of Directors, is an hunter, and enlightens and inspires people at speaking engagements around the country. This journey began for her in 1999 while attending a camp in Wyoming. Early one morning while out doing chores, she fell from a hay rack, landing on the handle of a pitchfork and shattering the T-12 vertebrea and smashing her spinal cord. Through recovery and acceptence, Ashlee has come out the otherside of this experience with a positive, meaningful outlook toward life and all the comes with it, good or bad.

She will be speaking Friday, April 4th on Making the ADA Work for You as part of her Crown & Camo Tour. Plan on joinining us to welcome her to the University of Wyoming campus.

For more information visit Ashlee’s blog Crown & Camo.
