Car Rentals for People with Disabilities

2015-1012 Wheeliz

When Charlotte de Vilmorin (based in based in Paris, France) traveled to Florida, she was frustrated by the lack of affordable transportation options for people with disabilities. After a lengthy search, she finally found a company that would accommodate her need for a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, but it was going to cost approximately $1,000 for 10 days. At that point, she decided to start a company that provides renters with wheelchair-accessible vehicles. Shortly thereafter, she developed and launched the company known as Wheeliz.

Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.
