College professor, author,

TV Sports Anchor, & nonprofit founder

Passionate about surfing, my life took an unexpected turn at age 15 when, riding the last wave of the day, I broke my neck and found myself paralyzed from the chest down. The journey to recovery was challenging, yet through this process, I discovered the profound value of life and realized my capacity to inspire others.

Transforming personal tragedy into positivity became my mission, aiming to assist others in bettering their lives. This led to the creation of the Gurmilan Foundation, dedicated to empowering individuals with disabilities on both sides of the US/Mexico border. The foundation provides scholarships for education, adaptive equipment, and driver training, opening up possibilities for those facing disabilities.

Our nonprofit has been utilizing Access Trax for the past 5 years, recognizing the pivotal role it plays in addressing a critical issue: limited accessibility to beaches for individuals facing mobility challenges.

Access Trax is a solution, providing a versatile and efficient means for individuals with mobility impairments to navigate sandy terrains and enjoy the therapeutic and recreational benefits that coastal areas offer. Beyond its practical benefits, Access Trax contributes to building a sense of community, breaking down barriers, and fostering positive shared experiences. Its versatility and positive impact make it an invaluable tool for anyone seeking to create more accessible and inclusive spaces.

      Our Story

      Access Trax invented by two occupational therapists in Southern California who saw a need for greater inclusion and accessibility and wanted to create a cost effective solution to create access for all.
