The world is not structured for those who have disabilities. In the US there are rules and guidelines to help make spaces a bit more accessible, but people still find a way to cut corners. The BLVD recently came upon a Facebook page, Wheelchair Ramps and Access From Hell, highlighting those corners people cut that make accessibility a nightmare.

From people locking bikes up on poles that obstruct the walkways, to cars parking across handicap accessible spots, and failing city infrastructure that make sidewalks unsafe. There are many things that make the world inaccessible and unsafe, this page allows people to share photos of the issues they see within their communities. Bringing awareness to those people who may rarely encounter a wheelchair or mobility device user. Go check them out today and share your mobility nightmares!

Hopefully pages and movements like this will help everyone become a little more aware of the importance of accessibility, and work harder at implementing and respecting wheelchair access routes.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
