Kristin Beale, author
Greater Things is my story of a Jet Ski accident at age 14. I was told I wouldn’t live and, when I did, my doctors forecasted that I won’t be able to breathe independently; speak; swallow; feel or move below my injury; or walk. I’ve worked as hard as I can to prove all those things wrong, and I’m still working on the last: walk. This book is my story of traveling around the country, rediscovering the world from the height of a wheelchair, trying new things, having fun, and learning about myself. I’ve completed 7 marathons in a wheelchair, built a house, have a job in the mortgage industry, and own a dog. Even after all these years, I still have my eyes set on walking. I’m focused on greater things.
