I am the founder, Wesdyne Otto. I was a teacher until I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I have diplomas in Art Therapy and Counselling, 7 years of Expressive Arts Coaching training, plus Multiple Sclerosis and Alopecia (hair loss). Life transitions, loss of identity, health crisis, and self-esteem are unique to People living with Chronic Illness and Disability.

I created Positive Shift because living with disability is normal.  Learning, mood/emotional, and physical disability are our lifelong dragons that can scare and confuse outsiders.
