Susan Jolly is a technologist, mentor, and mother, who has spent her career as an individual with a disability.  After sustaining life-changing injuries during college, Susan invested 11 years in finishing her degree.  Since then, she's moved cross-country, raised a son, and built a successful career in technology.  Like many others, Susan has encountered both challenges and triumphs.  At each turn, however, she has focused on the possible rather than the difficult - and now she has a bit of inspirational advice for those building careers amidst adverse circumstances.
