Faces of Spina Bifida: Meet Katelyn

My daughter, Katelyn is 15 years old and has Spina Bifida. She ambulates with long leg braces and crutches and then uses her wheels for longer distances.

This gal is truly amazing! She is competing this year in the US Wheelchair tennis Open in St Louis, MO. If she decides she enjoys competing, we will start competing all over the country and begin training for the Paralympics in Tokyo in 2020. She has been playing tennis since she was 6, when she picked a tennis racket during a summer camp.

Katelyn is also an extremely talented makeup artist! She already, at 15, has companies sending her product to review and try out. You can find her on Facebook at Glam by Katelyn or on Instagram at Glam by KK. I am sure she will inspire you!

As her parents, we could not be any prouder of this gal! She doesn't let Spina Bifida stand in the way of her dreams! She is determined, stubborn, and if I do say so, she is gorgeous! 😉 she inspires us every day!
