Tasha Schuh


Survivor, believer, fighter – Tasha Schuh is an inspiration and hope for all who face life’s greatest challenges. Tasha’s life changed dramatically when she was 16 years old; she was in a theater accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down. Today she has accomplished more than she could have ever dreamed. She has been the winner of numerous awards including The National Rehabilitation Champion Award and The Hometown Hero Award. In addition to authoring the books My Last Step Backward and My Next Move Forward, Tasha travels and shares her story of resilience and triumph over tragedy at schools, conferences, and organizations. “I have such a wonderful life that I wouldn’t trade it with anyone.” Tasha resides with her husband Doug in Ellsworth, Wisconsin.
