Ryan Rae Harbuck

Guest Writer

A Colorado native, Ryan Rae Harbuck has always found solace in the mountain air and has always been up for an outdoor challenge — as far as her wheelchair wheels could take her, and beyond. She has been a teacher and a swim coach, but enjoys being Mom the most. Most recently, Ryan has written a memoir, "when i grow up i want TO BE A CHAIR," that explores lessons learned from her struggles and, consequently, the victories therein. She and her husband Andrew live in Denver with their two mudslinging, car-vrooming young boys. Ryan is always excited to share her stories in person. To learn more, please visit her website at
