The Art of Adaptability: Climbing Mountains without Legs
November 27, 2018 Dr. Yvette Pagues

After walking into Brain Surgery and never walked back out, Dr. Yvette Pagues lost an opportunity for fully-funded Ivy League college scholarship, Fortune 100 Executive Engineering career and the ability to walk on her own. On the other side of tragedy, she won 3-wheelchair pageant titles with platform to help children aged 7-17 years old publish their #Storms2Stories in a book - starting with her own children, active advocacy for Global Inclusion, re-created career as Corporate Disability/Diversity Consultant, became published author, Purpose Coach, Professional Speaker and recently returned to graduate school to earn a Doctor of Education degree with focus on Special Populations. And without using legs, Dr. Yvette Pegues is climbing mountains, and she wants to show you how.
