Janice Jackson is an educator, advocator, motivator, and innovator. For the first 24 years of Janice’s life, she lived as an abled-bodied woman. After being hit by a car in 1984, she now lives as a woman with a disability and lives a very successful life from her wheelchair. She has spent the last 32 years breaking down the negative stereotypes that society has placed against women living with challenges, and has put a new face on women with disabilities.
