Jax Cowles is a speaker, brand development consultant and disability advocate who uses her knowledge and experience in creative storytelling, organizational strategies and architectural and fashion expertise to break the barrier between fearing verse embracing disability. She is committed to turning dreams into reality and to encourage you to be the writer of your own story.
Jax Cowles is a born and raised Jersey girl. She was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a form of Muscular Dystrophy, at 20 months old. SMA is a neuromuscular disease that affects the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord. It weakens the muscles and affects each individual differently (you can check out more on CureSMA.org). Her family decided right then and there that she would be brought up with no excuses and with the power to do anything. And just like that, just by putting skates on her feet and wheeling around in her wheelchair she was skating with her cousins.
