Spokane Native & Motivational Speaker
Since she was a little girl, Carrie Davis knew she was unique. Born without her left arm, she often wondered, “Why me?” She longed to be known for her contributions, not for what she was missing.
Carrie was born with a congenital limb deficiency and has worn a prosthesis since she was nine months old. She is the face of Amputee Empowerment Partners (AEP), the leading peer-to-peer support network for those living with limb loss or difference and its associated e-community, EmpoweringAmputees.org. Carrie finds the answer to “Why me?” through helping others.
Carrie travels across the country offering her experience and perspective to patients, therapists, prosthetists and doctors in her committed effort to improve patient care and is the recipient of the esteemed JE Hanger Excellence Award for customer service. Carrie works with families of children born with congenital anomalies, and assists those in need to find resources for funding. Carrie also acts as a peer mentor and serves as a support group leader for Camp No Limits, a national foundation dedicated to helping young amputees realize their potential. She has participated in numerous sporting events like the CAF San Diego Triathlon Challenge and the NYC Nautica National PC Championship Triathlon and is a two time National Champion Finisher.
She is a restaurateur, a motivational speaker, a teacher, a trainer, a coach and a philanthropist, dedicated to empowering others to reach beyond their perceived limits. Living by the motto: “Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself,” has enabled Carrie to create a life full of meaning.
Challenges are inevitable. Defeat is optional.
