With another busy workday ahead of her, Isabella Bullock needs just two things to keep her moving: an iced coffee and her Edge® 3 with iLevel®!
A native of Belleville, Michigan, Isabella (or Izzy for short), was born with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Today, as a working professional, Izzy knows the value of her independence. She has excelled to new heights in her career thanks to iLevel technology on her power chair.
“I love the freedom iLevel gives me,” Izzy said. “The ability to move at walking speed allows me to communicate with others at eye level without losing momentum.”
With iLevel, Izzy is completely mobile without any help from friends or family. At home, she can reach her kitchen cupboards. iLevel is beneficial in the workplace too, as Izzy uses seat elevation multiple times a day in her job as an employment specialist for the Center of Independent Living.
“I am able to use the Xerox machine independently and communicate with coworkers and clients without being looked down upon,” Izzy said. “The ability to be elevated and stroll down the hallway is one of the best feelings.”
Not only does she assist individuals in obtaining skills they need to become employed, Izzy connects her clients with community resources that can help people with disabilities live their best lives.
“I love seeing people with disabilities succeed and shatter the glass box society puts us in,” Izzy said.
In addition to her work at the Center of Independent Living, Izzy is a Q Roll Model for Quantum. She is an iced coffee enthusiast and enjoys getting lost in a good book.
