Tiffiny Carlson: The original SCI Superstar

Recently, a friend of mine announced that she would be writing a dating book for online daters. It’s for everyone, but I'm guessing a lot of what she has to say is geared toward those who have disabilities.

Tiffiny sustained a C6 spinal cord injury from a diving accident when she was 14. She writes blogs on just about every issue under the sun. Tiffiny’s sense of fashion and style make her the perfect person to get fashion tips from. One of the things Tiffiny has learned to embrace is duct tape; she says it fixes almost anything.

Tiffiny has a show online called “No Free Rides” where she interviews notable people that are making their mark upon the disability community. Other times she talks about fashion or makeup, boys or what new thing she wants to cook. Being a C6 Tiffiny has limited use of her hands which makes cooking that much challenging and rewarding as well.

Tiffiny practices Yoga with “Matthew Stanford” another rock star of the disability community. He sustained paralysis as a child during a car accident. Matthew says Yoga changed his life and he in turn changed Tiffiny & my life as I have been studying Matthew’s adaptive Yoga for years.

Did I mention she drives? Oh yes she does. I know for a fact that Tiffiny’s book will be a must read for anyone even if you aren’t looking. She’s a brilliant writer and a really nice person to top it all off.

Don’t forget to catch “No Free Rides” it’s definitely worth tuning on. Tiffiny has an easy way about her when she talks to someone and it comes through effortlessly.

You can find Tiffiny at • Beauty Ability 

You can also find her on Facebook, New Mobility Magazine blogging about disability issues among various other publications

    Why is the writer of this article surprised that "she drives". I don't get it! I'm guessing that the writer doesn't realize that we disabled have been driving vehicles for a long time now. But, I'm a life-timer. I survived polio. We fought for, and earned the rights that everyone follows. I only hope the new comers continue to fight.

    I am not surprised but some readers might be that "we" drive. Could have worded it differently I suppose.
