#WomensHistoryMonth - Holly Koester: Athlete, Role Model, Inspiration “Well, that was the beginning of my relationship with PVA – another family I joined – and my life has never been the same. This organization has done so much to educate everyone about people with disabilities. I can’t say enough about the Buckeye Chapter and all the other members of PVA. I enjoy working as the chapter’s sports director encouraging other veterans to try all the new recreational activities that are out there for people with disabilities. This summer I water-skied, the first time I’ve been up on skis since my accident. It was awesome!" #womenshistorymonth2018 #womenempowerment #womencrushwednesday #womensupportingwomen 🚺
