My name is Amanda, I am a poet, author and life coach with disabilities. They include vision impairment, hydrocephalus and autism.
It took some time for me to find my life's purpose, I found that having an open heart to what comes next is a gateway to finding true happiness.
I discovered the power of poetry in 2016, after being diagnosed with autism, it allows me to dance with life.
"I believe poetry has healing properties."
I am a disability empowerment coach.
It is time to live in a world where everyone is included., our differences are celebrated.
When we choose to include everyone, it makes for more peaceful world.
I work with clients and families to support growth, confidence, self love and disability empowerment. My fee is "Pay What You Can"
for Special Olympics Athletes.
I find joy in sharing my story and poetry with many others, I dream of making a positive impact in the lives of those who are differently abled. "I teach my clients how to embrace who they are."
My work has been published in ABILITY Magazine, and Autism Storytelling, National Public Radio.(NPR), World Wide Coaching Magazine, Autism Parenting Magazine, PBS American Portrait, Women Daily Magazine, Voyage LA, and most recently, recognized by The White House, for a poetic contribution "Rest in the World"
