Meet the Team
Driving to the airport for her first international contract at the age of 19 years old, up-and-coming fashion model Wendy Crawford was struck by a drunk driver and was rendered a quadriplegic. Following her accident, Wendy represented the Attorney General’s Office of Ontario (Canada) for several years, speaking about the perils of drinking and driving. Growing into womanhood with a disability, she noticed a lack of available information for women with disabilities. As a result, Wendy has since devoted her life to raising awareness of the particular issues that women with disabilities face, including the challenge of self-image and self-acceptance. As a spokesperson and TEDx speaker, Wendy has developed many empowering initiatives including Discovery Through Design, and mobileWOMEN.org, an online magazine for women in wheelchairs.
