Welcome to episode #46
My guest Ryan Harbuck
Ryan Harbuck is a teacher, swim coach, and author. Her first book, her memoirs called “When I grow up I want TO BE A CHAIR,” just came out this month. Check it out!
Ryan’s teenage years were challenging, including a paralyzing car accident and an alcoholic mother. She had to grow up quickly. She became a teacher and swim coach. She has been story-telling her whole life and has stitched all the stories together to produce her new book. Here, Ryan shares her life story, covering many exciting topics. Her accident, her life with a disability, family communication, pregnancy for someone paralyzed from the waist down, writing, and competing for the Paralympics. She teaches that anything is possible and that vulnerability is so critical. I think you will relate and connect with Ryan’s story.
Ryan, her husband Andrew, and their two young boys live in Denver, Colorado.
