Her vlogs showcase a range of topics from disability fashion tutorials, everyday challenges dealing with society, dating, and her new diagnosis journey.
She stars as Tracy Holmes in the John Cassavetes Award Winning film Give Me Liberty. The film premiered both at Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. Her performance was listed as one of the top performances of Sundance Film Festival 2019 by RogerEbert.com. She has been featured in popular media outlets like CNN, The New Yorker, AOL, HuffPost, Buzzfeed and more. She’s modeled in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive and Zappos Adaptive. She’s been a panelist at the YouTube Accessibility Summit, Los Angeles Abilities Expo, VidCon, and Cannes Lions, the world’s largest advertising conference and awards.
Her ultimate goal is to give an honest perspective of life as a disabled person dispelling myths and stereotypes of how disability lifestyle is perceived and experienced by creating content and pushing for inclusion and representation in the entertainment and beauty industries.
