033 - Linda Olson Author of Gone: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life

Not only did Linda Olson survive a horrible accident that left her as a triple(yes, triple) amputee, but she managed to thrive despite it. She also wrote a book about the experience—Gone: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life.

Linda Olson was in her late twenties, newly married, and a doctor when she was in a horrible accident while on vacation with her family. The aftermath left her without her legs and her right arm. She thought she would lose her husband too. But it turns out, she adapted and so did he. In this episode Linda tells Jeniffer and Chad about her experience, and how she overcame what seems from her telling, the minor setback of finding yourself with only one limb to work with. Her story is full of adventure, laughter, and a ton of inspiration. You can find out more about Linda at lindakolson.com
