Producer | Speaker | Advocate
Ms Wheelchair CO 2004
“As an educator, Jenny has supported Ride Designs’ wheelchair seating courses for Assistive Technology Professionals. Jenny provides real-life opportunities for our attending professionals to get hands-on, practice new skills, and learn directly from one of the most highly skilled users of Complex Rehabilitation Technology (CRT), Jenny. Her presentations are inspiring, humorous (often at my expense), provocative and challenging, always ending in a reasonable, but important call to action. Course reviews typically reveal Jenny’s involvement as critical to the course’s success.
I have also witnessed Jenny at work as a sports producer for Altitude Sports. Her disability disappears! The level of respect she earns, and the competent leadership she provides is remarkable.
In 2009, I invited Jennifer to join the CRT industry event in Washington DC as a consumer advocate in support of a separate benefit category. Her powerful and personal messaging regarding the importance of access to CRT has helped move the needle significantly towards a much broader understanding and support of these bills amongst Colorado House, Senate members, and beyond. Since then, she has become a critical consumer advocate, returning to Capitol Hill annually to join our industry in support of consumer access to CRT.
In closing, my client, colleague, and friend, Jenny Siegle, is a personal and national treasure. Her powerful leadership is driven by a deep-seated sense of justice, knowledge, compassion and advocacy. She is an inspiration, and worthy of anyone’s attention that is fortunate enough to meet, visit, employ, or simply listen to her.”
