June 6, 2014 Chattanooga Zoo
Being Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee allows me the privilege to be a public figure and meet so many special people. Every year, the Chattanooga Zoo opens after hours for families with children who have special needs and, in a partnership with Unum, provides admission, activities, and food at no cost. This was a truly special night indeed. I was able to set up a table by the food tent and came in contact with so many nice people throughout the evening.

What a great night at the Nashville Special Olympics held at Lipscomb University! I had the privilege of being a banner judge and boy, was that a tough job!
April 26, 2014 Cleveland, Tennessee
I had the privilege of participating in my local Special Olympics on April 26th. What a wonderful day this was! As Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee, I was able to participate in the ribbon ceremony after each event. To see these athletes stand on the podium and accept their awards was such an amazing experience. I met so many sweet people who I will never forget!
Thank you so much to the Cleveland Civitan Club for inviting me to participate. This is an organization that I plan on becoming involved with in the near future. Also, I can promise you this will not be my last Special Olympics! From here on out I plan on being a volunteer each year and experiencing the wonderful feeling of watching these amazing people overcome their disabilities and standing on those podiums accepting their awards. I am so honored to be an advocate for every single one of them!
