HOW IT ALL BEGAN...Meg was paralyzed in St. George, Utah when she accidentally jumped off a 40-foot cliff, breaking both her femurs, arms, collar bone, and neck in the landing. She became a C-7 quadriplegic.

Though confined to a wheelchair, Meg refuses to sit still. She started out her time in a wheelchair playing rugby, also known as Murderball, with the Utah Scorpions. Less than a year and a half after her injury, Meg represented Utah as an independent delegate at the national Ms. Wheelchair America Pageant in New York, winning the Spirit Award. That same year, Meg founded Utah’s chapter of the Ms. Wheelchair pageant.

Meg taught high school seminary at Layton, Northridge, and Fremont High Schools.

Her work has touched many on a local, national, and international level and Meg was the recipient of the Athena Leadership Award in 2012.

In addition to numerous television and print stories, Meg was the cover story for Wasatch Women in 2008. She has been the inspiration for several documentaries and movies including Falling Up.

Meg was paralyzed halfway through college, but finished her degree at Weber State University. She has a BA in Communications with a minor in English. Part of her college experience was as an intern at Walt Disney World.

His assailant was arrested and indicted but never went to trial. He never went to trial because he was brutally beaten to death in the streets of Providence, Rhode Island before his court date.
