“I am passionate about the outdoors, accessibility, Maine and particularly the western Maine mountains. Accessibility can be physical as in a ramp or mental as in a stereotype. Ramps can be built, and stereotypes can be broken down on the road to ensuring everyone has a fair shot in achieving their goals. Once I found out I could help do this by working for LEAP, I caught the spirit and was hooked for life.”
