Meet our Guest:
Bean was paralyzed in 2012, by an autoimmune disorder called Transverse Myelitis. She has over 10 years experience as an X-ray technologist specializing in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab. She is also a certified Makeup Artist who has worked on numerous fashion shows and photo shoots.
Since being diagnosed and achieving milestones that seemed impossible, Bean is determined to make her experience a positive one. To help others affected by disability and vowing to Never Give Up.
She is the cofounder & administrator of ReYu, a local (Edmonton) non-profit Paralysis Recovery Centre. Bean was one of the featured models with disabilities in Western Canada Fashion Week. This part of fashion week was the first ever of its kind in Canada. www.reyu.com
