If you could do one job until retirement, what would it be? “My current job, or to continue doing advocacy work of some type, on behalf of the disabled community.
Work Philosophy: “It’s important that we do as much as we can as persons with disabilities. Sometimes the struggle is the message. The funny thing about having a disability is that you might think people look at you and say ‘Aw, poor guy’ in their heads, but who’s to say they’re not really looking at you and thinking ‘Wow! Look at that guy!’”
Giv’er Miramichi is about “What’s up, what’s new, what’s happening”. We are focused on building people up, supporting one another and celebrating our successes.
