Jenny Smith

Title: Motivational & Educational Speaker and Writer

Education: Psychology - Counseling Psychology
Louisville, KY, USA


When I was 16 years old, I sustained a C6-7 spinal cord injury, leaving me paralyzed from the chest down. After completing my master’s degree in counseling psychology, I distributed wheelchairs for eight years in developing countries. I work with a non-profit organization supporting our workers while they live overseas, as well as write a blog about topics related to spinal cord injuries and other disabilities. I am also a contributing writer at Bard Care. Rowing on the Ohio River, playing tennis, and wheelchair rugby are just a few of the ways I enjoy staying physically active.


I have a passion for motivating people to live the impossible through my speaking and writing. My desire is to see people of all abilities living a full and active life.
