About the Presenter:
Rachel Stevenson is a librarian from Northwest Pennsylvania. It was not until her father lost her leg to a parasite she realized how ableist the world is and became an advocate for those with disabilities. She lives with an invisible disability she grew up being told she should never talk about because people would judge her harshly over it. She is the first to admit that she is always learning.
