"A workshop with Michelle Woolfrey went beyond expectations to motivate staff to think differently about the terms disability and diversity. From her introduction about her own story of overcoming many obstacles as a blind girl, she transmits how to become better employees by heightening awareness of others and their own inner activists. Our new appreciation will surely benefit our staff.” 

– Lorrie Oddie, Assitant Warden, Joyceville Institution, Kingston



“I recently attended a Dining in the Dark Gala in Barrie hosted by Michelle Woolfrey and her mother, Diane. I have been following Michelle’s journey for several years and keep being impressed by her strength of character and her evolution as a dynamic speaker. She makes the audience want to conquer more in their lives and follow her courageous spirit to make their world a better, more welcoming place for everyone, while meeting the needs of their immediate environments. Her example of making her disability an opportunity to grow in new directions is truly inspirational. Can’t wait to see where she goes next!”

– Brenda Kayser, Barrie Visions Gala Attendee, President of Dempster-Paterson Holdings.
