John Morris & WheelchairTravel.org in the media
John Morris is the globe-trotting Founder of WheelchairTravel.org, known for traveling the world with one hand, a passport and a power wheelchair. He holds a Bachelor's degree in history and political science and an Master's degree in history from Florida State University. He previously taught high school history in St. Louis, Missouri, serving as part of the Teach for America corps, following three years at the Foundation for Excellence in Education in Tallahassee, Florida. After a serious motor vehicle accident in 2012, John was left a triple amputee and wheelchair user. Having flown more than half a million miles since his recovery, he is among the world’s most traveled wheelchair users. John’s lifelong commitment to the marginalized in society served as preparation for a life with disability and his subsequent advocacy for accessibility and inclusion. He eloquently shares his vision for an accessible world with both travel providers and the community at large.
