Woodrum now works in human resources for a company, is a life coach and works as a vocational rehab counselor.

"Everybody goes through levels of changes in their limitations," Woodrum said. "I really feel we are all on the road [in life] together," she said adding everyone faces big changes. "Mine just came when I was 16."
