Oz Sanchez, Monday’s keynote speaker at CALA’s  2014 Fall Conference & Trade Show, is no stranger to overcoming adversity. By the time he graduated from high school, he was involved with drugs, gangs, and street life. But in 1996, Oz turned his life around following his recruitment into the Marine Corps; later, he joined their Special Operations forces.

In 2001, while in the process of transferring between branches to serve as a Navy Seal, Oz’s life changed forever. He was involved in a motorcycle accident, which resulted in a spinal cord injury that led to paralysis and neurological complications.

There is nothing you can’t accomplish when you know no limits.

~Oz Sanchez

After overcoming his post-injury depression, Oz attained a degree in business administration with a minor in public communications and began competing in the adaptive sports of handcycling and triathlon, working his way to the top in both sports.
