After being diagnosed with bone cancer, I elected to amputate my right leg. I made the decision in order to regain an active lifestyle: playing sports, spending time outdoors, and not being limited by my condition. In 2012, I began product testing for LIM Innovations, and in 2014 took a full-time job as Marketing Director. Most recently, I transitioned to the user outreach team, focusing my attention on improving the quality of life and experience for the end-user.
