Our Story


SheLift was founded by Sarah Herron, the Colorado native who gained her notoriety on ABC’s The Bachelor for being the first contestant with a physical disability. Sarah was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, but it hasn’t stopped her from climbing mountains, skiing double black diamonds and even searching for love on television. It was the outreach of young women who watched and related to Sarah on the show that inspired her to start SheLift.



" Growing up, I limited myself from so many activities and social situations because I was self-conscious of how I would be perceived by others. I never saw someone in the media that I could relate to and learn from. My goal is to create a space where young women with physical differences feel comfortable and seen."



SheLift aims to share Sarah's love for outdoor adventures – specifically in the mountains – and the transformative powers of adventure. Sarah wants to share with other women that whether it's on the slopes, on a trail or on a show... finding love is possible, and it starts with yourself.
