Her Story of Success...

At the age of 17, Jessica Harthcock suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury during a gymnastics training session, leaving her paralyzed from the chest down.

That same determination led her to launch Utilize Health, a growing business that helps patients find the best treatment for neurological conditions.
