Ali Ingersoll is a day trader, disability strategy consultant, Ms. Wheelchair North Carolina 2022, writer, blogger, editor, and public speaker. She started her advocacy mission after being repeatedly denied medically necessary equipment by insurance companies over the last 10 years since becoming a C6 quadriplegic and full-time wheelchair user after a shallow water diving accident. Ali’s passion lies in coaching people with disabilities on how to improve their quality of life by teaching them to self-advocate in order to live a life of independence, dignity, and grace.
Disability Inclusion in our society is a priority Ali focuses on improving every day. Ali has a firm philosophy of paying it forward by giving back to the community through working with stakeholders in the government, non-profit world, and partnering organizations to create a more inclusive society and disability employment environment. She believes it’s important to band together as one in order to affect the greatest change on the national stage and in local communities.
