"When you have an injury it’s helpful to talk to people who have gone through similar situations."
Shane is a business owner, running Push Mobility, a disability equipment provider. He enjoys swimming, gardening, cycling, and socialising. He has travelled to Europe and Asia, as work takes him overseas each year.
After a swimming pool accident, Shane acquired a C5 incomplete Spinal Cord Injury. He independently drives a 4WD, and uses a manual chair, but can walk short-distances. He also has a public access trained assistance dog.
Shane believes that after an accident it is beneficial to talk to people who are like-minded to understand how they overcame their hurdles. He is eager to provide his knowledge as a business owner to others who are also interested in the area. Identifying as a gay male, Shane also wants to share his own experiences to help those in the LGBT community.
