About Josie Byzek

My role as executive editor is to ensure all of our articles are consistently the best they can be. More than anything, we want our content to be meaningful and practical, as well as entertaining. I’ve been with New Mobility since August 2000 and am excited about the ideas and insights our new crew — editor Ian Ruder and associate editor Seth McBride — bring to the mag. When not at my laptop you’ll find me kayaking, perfecting a vegetarian recipe, or hanging out with my partner, Ginny, and our youngest kid, Antonio, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Contact me. I live with my family in Harrisburg, Pa., mere blocks away from the Susquehanna River, on which I love to fish, kayak, canoe or just sit on a rock and watch the sun go down. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998, after years of trekking from one doctor after another to figure out what was going on with my body. But I’ve been involved in our community professionally since 1990, when I first got a job answering phones at the center for independent living in Pittsburgh.
