Xavier Collier

Below the Elbow Amputee

Xavier was injured on the job in 2016. After getting a transradial prosthesis and occupational therapy training, he returned to work in 2018. He’s passionate about his workout routine using his custom activity-specific prosthesis.
While he was recovering from his injuries, Xavier channeled his energy into planting a garden, growing his own food, and getting creative in the kitchen — his specialty is fresh salsas. He loves to go fishing and play football with his son, Xavier Jr., and his side hustle is buying and managing rental properties.

I was a little scared to go back to work. But it really helped me mentally. It gave me a purpose."
