Amy is one of the strongest and most inspiring people I know. In this episode, we talk about resilience in the face of physical or emotional challenges.
Amy is paralyzed from the waist down from an ATV accident six years ago. Yet from the minute she left the hospital, she has been a beacon of positivity.
She talks about how she ‘died’ and how “living on borrowed time” gives her the gratitude and the grace to embrace her new purpose, even on the not-so-awesome days.
We also chat about her return to competition last year as an adaptive Crossfit competitor and how she’s grown as an athlete from her days as a competitive swimmer.
Plus, why Amy decided, while still in the hospital after her accident, to create the Amy Van Dyken Foundation that pays it forward to other spinal cord warriors and how you can become part of Amy’s Army.
All that, plus how we first met more than a decade ago in a Phoenix nightclub! Don’t miss this inspiring and fun conversation on the next episode of The Women’s Eye podcast.
