Who are we?
A Consumer Resource.
TravelinWheels is the culmination of spending the last 19 years navigating the muddy waters of disability travel with my daughter, Kelsey. She is a world-class athlete who happens to have Spina Bifida and use a wheelchair. After spending countless years researching destinations, experiencing mishaps, and learning the hard way, we agreed that there had to be a better way to get and share accessibility information about places around the world.
My background as an internet executive who has spent the last 11 years creating solutions for companies such as Motorola, Time Warner, Comcast, and Ticketmaster naturally led me to dream of an online place where travelers could get detailed, objective information that was important to them and also contribute their stories and opinions to help others. Thus, TravelinWheels was born.
TravelinWheels' counts as its advisors, investors, and friends, several business leaders, current and former executives from major travel companies, many disability organizations, and global travel providers. We are a member of the Society for Accessible Travel and Hospitality, as well as the European Network for Accessible Travel.
More than anything we believe that providing comprehensive accessible travel information will give you the confidence and inspiration to travel the globe, whether it is in a wheelchair, with a cane, or any other assistance you may use.
