Team Adaptive

Our dedicated staff is a blend of individuals with diverse backgrounds, including spinal cord injuries, limb loss, traumatic brain injuries, post-traumatic stress, pain disorders, neurological conditions, and caregivers. We meet participants and their families where they are in their pain and trauma. Our team includes former Paralympians, Olympic coaches, medical professionals and certified specialists who draw from their shared lived experiences to foster understanding, gentleness, and intentionality, demonstrating that the perceived impossible is indeed possible.
