Mindy Henderson

Speaker, Writer, & Advocate.

On a mission to leave the world a little better than how she found it, Mindy strives to help create a world where inclusion is the norm, where people see possibilities instead of limitations, and where no challenge is too big to overcome.

Driven to build a world that welcomes and includes EVERYONE, Mindy is a powerful leader in disability/ability rights, with specific interests in accessible air travel, universal design, inclusive style, and better representation for the disabled community in the media and entertainment.

A popular motivational speaker (giving her first speech at the age of four as the Texas State Poster Child for the Muscular Dystrophy Association!), Mindy’s mission is to show up as an example of positivity, hope, bravery, and possibilities, and to help individuals own their adversity, stop making excuses, see their fullest potential, and give them the tools to reach for it.

Mindy’s upcoming book The Truth About Things That Suck is for anyone who wants a new perspective on adversity when times get tough. The book covers unemployment, parenting challenges, love, life, loss, and more, and teaches us ALL that the wrong mindset can be far more disabling than what any wheelchair might represent.

Mindy is the Senior Director and Editor-In-Chief of the national Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Quest Media platform including the magazine, blog, and podcast. The Quest mission is to empower the neuromuscular disease community—and the broader community of individuals with disabilities—to live their lives to their fullest potential. Engaging thought leaders in conversations that matter and that move the community forward, content is intended to inform, educate, inspire, and entertain.

Named a 2022 Woman of Influence by Success magazine, Mindy is also the host of The Truth About Things That Suck podcast, a guest contributor of “Morning Motivations” on CBS Austin’s We Are Austin lifestyle morning show, and was recently named an Austin Woman to Watch by Austin Woman magazine.

In the spirit of living a life without limits, despite her significant physical limitations, Mindy has also accomplished:

- Multiple singing appearances on national television.

- A CD recorded with George Strait’s musicians accompanying her.

- Spending two weeks in one of the least wheelchair-accessible countries on the planet.
