About the solution

Sheri Denkensohn and her husband Tony Trott created "Happy on Wheels", an entrepreneurial business initiative focused on helping wheelchair users, and all individuals, to live happier lives. Sheri is the writer and speaker, while Tony serves as editor, web designer and social media guru.
Sheri, 47, of Arlington, Va., was 16 years old when her injuries in a diving accident resulted in quadriplegia. Tony, has Friedreich’s ataxia, a progressive, neurological disorder that affects his balance and muscle coordination.
Tony and Sheri met through their mutual work with the ENDependence Center of Northern Virginia, where Tony served as a peer mentor and Sheri served on the board.
In 2009, Sheri sought out Shepherd Center for surgeries on two pressure-sore wounds. Post-operative complications kept her at the hospital for six months, much of it spent in Shepherd Center’s Intensive Care Unit. “I was intubated and on a ventilator most of my time there and never thought I’d be able to go back to work. But I did! I’m thankful everyone at Shepherd knows how to be both tough and supportive.”
“We began Happy on Wheels to share our experiences in hopes that every individual will be able to apply some of them to either their own life or that of others”, Sheri explained.
