Thread: New Advocacy Position

  1. #1

    New Advocacy Position

    After 18yrs I've decided to leave my Wall St. career and accept a new Graduate Advisory position @ Craig Hospital. I'll be working for the President of the hospital, Mike Fordyce, on a number of fronts relating to Craig and affecting the SCI/TBI Community.

    Nearly ten years to the day post-injury I will hopefully be able to help Craig graduates and many members of the SCI/TBI disability community transition back to more independent lives, challenging new endeavors, legislative and funding efforts as well as supportive opportunities.

    I'm looking forward to this new role, please let me know how I can help. Thank you for any and all support.

    Onward & Upward!

    Chris

    Congratulations Chris. You've done much for the SCI community, and I'm sure your new position will be beneficial for not only the spinal cord injured, but for yourself, too. Keep up the good fight friend.

    I can't think of a better person to be able to do this for the SCI/TBI community.

    Wow, that's great Chris. I'm sure that job will be much more close to your heart than being in the financial markets. I'm sure you will do well with it.

    Congrats! When I left the corporate world after 25 years and moved into the non-profit sector my whole world changed for the better. Everyday I felt a sense of pride and accomplishment. I hope you have the same experience.

    Congratulations Chris sounds like a great position & opportunity.

    Somewhat like Sharon stated I found myself retooled with skills post SCI and looking for work. I ended up working for a non-profit disability agency. Found it very rewarding and have always looked back grateful that I had a career that felt purposeful and rewarding.

    All the best to you.
