Why did you start a new travel website?
While I was a student at Western I created Disability Awareness Week and helped launch the Associated Students Disability Outreach Center. I knew then that I wanted to build my own company that would advocate for people with disabilities.
Now as a national disability advocate, I travel a lot, most recently to San Francisco. Reflecting on my own experiences, a lot of hotels don’t typically have what they say they have in terms of disability accommodations. I always call the hotel to confirm that my needs will be met, but there have been multiple times when I arrive at a hotel and the room I booked was unavailable or did not even exist.
Actually, anyone can book travel arrangements through www.abilitrek.com—they don't have to have a disability. But my hope is to make the process of traveling a lot easier, thanks in large part to the reviews from other travelers.
