I Just (Became Paralyzed)! Now What? With Ryan Rae Harbuck


Hey Friends,


In this episode, we hear Ryan Rae Harbuck’s story about becoming paralyzed after a car accident at just 16 years old.


Her teenage years challenged her significantly, and she had to learn quickly and grow up fast. 


Finding a lot of power in her own vulnerabilities, she became a teacher and a swim coach. She found her way to India for experimental stem cell treatment, and navigated torrid relationships until she finally met the love of her life-- marrying only three months after meeting. 


Ryan Rae became a mom, and has had so many incredible moments of joy in her life. She shares how her story took her down a path she never anticipated, but one she is grateful for.


Listen in as we talk about:

  • The accident that changed her life and losing her boyfriend at the same time
  • What caused her paralysis 
  • The powerful mindset that helped her heal 
  • The journey to learning how to live with her paralysis and finding the love of her life unexpectedly
  • The differences between invisible and visible disabilities 
  • Becoming a published author

Smiles, Jessica
