Survivor, believer, fighter – Tasha Schuh is an inspiration and hope for all who face life’s greatest challenges. Tasha’s life changed dramatically when she was 16 years old; she was in accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down. Winner of the National Rehabilitation Champion Award, Crowned Ms. Wheelchair USA 2012, and author of her book My Last Step Backward, Tasha travels and shares her story of resilience and triumph over tragedy at schools, churches, and organizations. “I have such a wonderful life that I wouldn’t trade with anyone.” Tasha resides with her husband Doug in Ellsworth, Wisconsin.
“We selected Tasha Schuh for our 18th Annual Fall Luncheon which took place on Thursday, October 15th, 2015. She was an electrifying speaker. Tasha’s passion for life becomes infectious as she speaks. Tasha’s delivery was lively, confident, filled with emotion and mixed with humor. When a room of over 400 guests explodes with laughter several times it tells me the speaker has made a connection during the presentation. In my opinion once that happens you have success!! Just when you think Tasha’s presentation can’t get any better…. it does. With a voice of an angel, and a heart of a saint, she releases a song that has become words to her own life. Her performance was punctuated by spontaneous applause and all guests on their feet. AMAZING! CHILLS & TEARS! It is my pleasure to give Tasha Schuh my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker. She will deliver and share a story that is inspiring and entertaining. Tasha Schuh is one of life’s greatest gifts.” – Mary K. Behrens, Executive Director, The Women’s Fund

It was the perfect culmination of our theme, “Passion and Purpose, Making Life Meaningful.” Thank you both so much, for sharing your story.”– Patty Morter, WRAP Conference Speaker-Co Chair

What Paralyzes You?
In November 1997, Tasha was in a theater accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down. Tasha felt alone in her prognosis, but after 17 years of being in a wheelchair she has overcome more than she ever thought possible. Today she sees how many are also struggling with paralysis; not exactly physical paralysis but instead mental paralysis. There are millions that are being plagued with fear and it is holding them back from living the life that they were destined to live. In this message, Tasha challenges her listeners, through her powerful stories and humor, to step out from fear and overcome what is stealing so much from their lives.
