Why I Love STARS…
I love working at STARS because I love the opportunity to help others feel the power of adaptive sports and how it can heal not just the client but the entire family. I am living proof of that. I experienced the healing power of adaptive sports one year to the day when my son became a paraplegic due to cancer. We honored that day by having him learn to ski in a bi-ski when he was 3 at Steamboat. The moment I watched him making turns with his outriggers and me skiing behind him, I knew that we would make it and that there were now opportunities to be able to find new activities that we could still participate together as a family.
