About Maureen Gazda

Maureen Gazda remembers reading her first copy of New Mobility from her hospital bed in the summer of 1997. The 12-year-old competitive swimmer had just been thrown into the world of quadriplegia after diving into a friend’s backyard pool, sustaining a C5 incomplete SCI. Writing became her escape and she went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in English from The University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2007. She is beyond excited that her relationship with NM has come full circle, from avid reader to contributing writer.
