Lake Kowell lives and wheels in beautiful Northern California with her daughter. An eager advocate for the disabled community, she actively participates and chairs in numerous nonprofit events throughout the year. Working within the adapted vehicle industry gives her the opportunity to help individuals with disabilities. Giving people the power of mobility is gratifying as freedom of independence is something she feels strongly about. A passionate supporter of the local Spinal Cord Injury Support groups, Santa Rosa Blazers Wheelchair Basketball Team and Chris Reeves Peer Mentorship Program gives her the chance to give back to the community she loves.
