My article, "How Does She Do it? Parenting With A Disability," was published on Ravishly.com. My hope is to further the conversation about living with disabilities that I invite when I talk about my struggle with my double whammy, traumatic brain injury and concurrent genetic disease.
Update- I just got notified it was syndicated! Thanks, Ravishly!
Remarkable Oregon Women: Revolutionaries & Visionaries
Without the efforts of inspiring, brave women of the past, the progressive and individualistic Oregon we know today might not exist. From native tribes and Oregon Trail pioneers to Victorian Suffragettes and and unlikely polititions, strong female leaders give profound meaning to the state motto -- alis volat propriius -- she flies with her own wings.

Jennifer Chambers writes about strong people with bold stories. Chambers is a national speaker on self-advocacy, body love and on how the legacies of strong women in history contribute to activism today. Her work has been in newspapers, magazines, and websites, everywhere from Redbook to Disabledparenting.com.
Her latest book is Abigail Scott Duniway and Susan B. Anthony in Oregon: Hesitate No Longer,(History Press, 2018). Her last book, Remarkable Oregon Women: Revolutionaries & Visionaries, is currently in production for a play based on the text to be staged later in 2018.
She attended the University of Iowa Summer Writing Festival. The co-owner and Contributing Editor of Groundwaters Publishing is a survivor of traumatic brain injury, which forced her to re-learn everything from walking and talking to tying her shoes. Chambers lives in the Pacific Northwest. In her free time, she coaches soccer, knits, and plays the ukulele. Her life is fueled by coffee, family, music, and books.
