Monica J. Foster is vibrant amputee on wheels who was born with spina bifida and faced leg amputation in 2010 after a non-healing wound in her left foot lead to life-threatening illness. A survivor of various health and life obstacles, Monica has already lived longer than ‘experts’ expected when little was understood about spina bifida in the 1970s, which results in an underdeveloped, open spinal cord and paralysis. She has accomplished many things not expected of her, from simply existing to thriving as an independent woman with a disability, to graduating college, driving a car with hand controls and wheelchair lift, getting married, to becoming an accessible homeowner and owning her own successful businesses.
Monica specializes in, but is not limited to, helping people with disabilities and others who are disenfranchised by society’s narrow beliefs and blatant discrimination. She has most recently included people in the LGBTIQ community among her clients and welcomes the opportunity to be a supportive ally.
Monica is founder of BUTTERFLYWHEEL Motivation, Advocacy & Consulting (www.butterflywheel.com), a professional life coaching, speaking and consulting company she founded in 2008.
