Writer in Canada
As the owner of Running Steps, Sarah draws on 20 years of combined volunteer and work experience with people with disabilities to pursue two passions: writing and working toward a society where all people feel safe, welcome, and empowered to participate fully and meaningfully in their schools, workplaces and communities.
Sarah's involvement with the disability community as front-line worker, friend, and person living with both visible and invisible disabilities gives her a unique perspective from which to comment on disability-related issues and to teach others about the realities of living in society as a person with a disability. She uses her award-winning blog, "Girl With The Cane", to talk about disability-related issues, and has written for several online and print publications, including "Disability Horizons", "Ollibean", "Abilities" magazine and the Accessible Clean Taxis Coalition website
Sarah does freelance writing and blogging, and can also assist organizations to design, implement and monitor social media campaigns. She is also happy to work with businesses, organizations and agencies to become more "disability-friendly".
Sarah is currently writing a series of guides to help stroke survivors transition to post-stroke life. See http://www.strokeguides.com for more information.
