After being hit by a trolley train in 2012, Lizzy sustained a C5 spinal cord injury and was told that she would never breathe on her own or move anything below her shoulders ever again. Now, confined to a power wheelchair, she continues to defy those odds and continues on her mission to live life to the fullest. As a motivational speaker, she spreads an empowering message about overcoming obstacles and what it truly means to Never give up. As her motto has always been, believe, she says to keep believing in yourself and your dreams, even after life wakes you up.
Lizzy has always been about loving and living life to its fullest potential. Before her accident, she was a motocross champion in the Wild West Nationals, she was titled the World Championship Natural Bodybuilding Sports Model, she was a personal trainer and Zumba instructor, an adventurer who loved anything from skydiving, rock climbing, and snowboarding, down to simpler adventures, like biking, hiking… And everything in between.
