Headshots - 2 (1)

Hi! My name is Heather Morgan. I am a life coach, trainer, disability advocate, and crip theologian.

Life coaching and training are on the back seat at the moment for me, but the site is full of resources, so feel free to poke around! I’m still available to do work as a disability advocate and speaker, and am actively pursuing work in the area of crip theology.

Disability Advocacy/Speaking

As a speaker and advocate, I am passionate about issues such as accessibility, housing, and structural supports, including access to equipment, diagnostics and community supports to help people move from surviving to thriving, both for individuals with disabilities, and their caregivers.

To that end, I currently serve on the Barrie Accessibility Advisory Committee as their sub-chair and volunteer with the Ontario Disability Coalition. I have spoken to community groups, service organizations, medical professionals, politicians, media and more, and am available to speak on a wide range of topics, either online or in-person.

As an individual with a disability who also lives as a caregiver to others with disability, I bring a unique lived experience to my advocacy that is deeply rooted in the disability community. I am convinced that the needs and perspectives of those with disabilities can improve and inform all of our lives for the better.

Crip Theologian

Crip Theology is work done by those with disabilities on the topic of theology. But it’s more than that. It’s work that incorporates the lived and embodied experiences of disability into the questions that are asked and the approaches taken to theological inquiry.
