148. Creating a More Equitable World with Heather C. Markham

How can we move forward after receiving a difficult diagnosis?

This week’s guest is Heather C. Markham, author of the new book “Rough Waters: From Surviving to Thriving with a Progressive Muscular Dystrophy.” Heather is also a competitive Para Surfer, winner of Ms. Wheelchair Kentucky, an engineer, educator and wearer of many many hats—and her story is truly inspiring. After being diagnosed with a progressive muscular dystrophy at age 34, Heather took on new adventures and found new ways to create a joy-filled life.

In our conversation, we talk about how Heather’s diagnosis impacted her own identity, tips for maintaining resilience in difficult times, the challenges of traveling with a disability, and so much more. We also talk about adaptive technology and how we can create a more accessible and equitable world for all.
