About

TiffC_Benson_sm

My name is Tiffiny Carlson and I’m a disability¬†writer from Minnesota, minus the accent. A proud Augsburg College graduate and a woman on a mission. I
have a C5-6 incomplete spinal cord injury from a diving accident when I was 14; a long time ago. I now love my career as a writer and feel extremely lucky I get to do it for a living ūüôā

Specifically, I’ve been the SCI Life columnist for New Mobility Magazine¬†for over 12 years; the largest print magazine for people with disabilities in the US.¬†I’ve also written hundreds of disability articles over the years for publications like the Huffington Post,¬†Penthouse, Playgirl and Nerve.com. Full-time, I am the Executive Director SPINALpedia.com, a nonprofit helping those with spinal cord injuries with videos and recreational adventures. I also¬†blog regularly¬†for Easystand.¬†A great Minnesota company that makes standing frames.

And I love running my longtime site¬†BeautyAbility that you’ve stumbled upon. We used to have a message board, but it’s no longer . We do however have a Facebook community. Check it out!¬†Beauty Ability

When I’m not writing, I love period films, cooking in my accessible kitchen, spending time with my boyfriend, fashion and makeup and traveling whenever possible. I also speak on self-esteem as a woman with a disability. I last spoke at the Push Nation Fest April 22nd – 23rd, 2016, in Tampa, FL. My next speaking engagement will be at the Morton Paralysis Cure Fund Gala as their 2016 Honoree on Sept. 8th, 2016. Please contact me for speaking inquiries: ¬†tiffinycarlson@gmail.com
