NRRTS Consumer Advocate of the Year
Jenny was named the 2020 NRRTS Consumer Advocate of the Year for all the advocacy work she has done to ensure individuals with disabilities have continued access to Complex Rehab Technology.
In 2019, Jenny joined forces with some wonderful people she has met while advocating in Washington DC. They established Unite4CRT, a group created to not only continue fighting for CRT, but also to educate the population about what it is like to live with a disability.
“She is active on social media and shares her story whenever she is asked through articles and video. She faithfully attends the CRT Conference each year and is unafraid to approach her legislators with information they need to understand complex rehab technology and the needs of the CRT Community. Jenny understands and values the role of the supplier in her own ability to lead an active lifestyle.
Jenny facilitated the formation of the new coalition, #Unite4CRT, and has been a driving force in planning the monthly town hall meeting topics and discussions. As the host for these meetings, Jenny’s warm and welcoming personality ensures that everyone feel welcome. She is able to initiate and encourage discussion for a diverse audience. She embodies the group’s mission, “Bridging the gap between the perception and the reality of living with a disability.”
