Hey, I’m Hannah. I have a chronic illness but I’m not letting it stop me. I'm a Lyme survivor with deep roots in the chronic illness community. As a global ambassador for InvisiYouth Charity, a National Lyme Ambassador, and a frequent panelist for diversity and inclusion events, I have a strong platform that spreads awareness around workplace diversity and inclusion. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Boston University, I worked at a top tier design firm where I learned how to expertly craft a brand, and then I built my own. Using the skills I gained while studying hospitality at BU, I grew that brand into a business. I took a personal setback in my life and turned it into a viable business opportunity in creating Chronically Capable, a platform that strives to connect the chronically ill with meaningful, flexible work opportunities. I encourage anyone to reach out to me: to share their story, to collaborate, or to join me in making the world a more accommodating place where people don’t have to choose between their health and their passions.

Remote Job Opportunities for People With Disabilities - November 2021

Last month, we recognized National Disability Employment Awareness Month, also known as NDEAM. Businesses across the nation exhibited their commitment to tackling disability employment issues. Organized by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) of the U.S. Department of Labor, NDEAM 2021’s theme was “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.” According to ODEP, this year’s theme “reflects the importance of ensuring that people with disabilities have full access to employment and community involvement during the national recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.” While I wish every month was NDEAM, and we shouldn’t talk about disability inclusion only once a year, I was excited to see the commitment from employers. Having worked in the disability/chronic illness space for almost four years now, I’ve participated in NDEAM a few times. I’ve often felt conflicted about this month, wondering, “Are companies just posting about this for the sake of attention?” This year, I watched first-hand as companies authentically participated in NDEAM. Companies were eager to educate their employees, learn about the barriers those with disabilities face, and make true strides towards inclusion. The past year and a half has been hard for all of us, but we’ve also learned a lot. Companies are starting to see how easy it can be to accommodate their employees. They’re learning that when employees feel comfortable showing up as their true selves to work, they’re happier and more productive! I feel hopeful that we have moved over the hump and change is happening. If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable , a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community! If you want to keep up with our work and our job opportunities, be sure to sign up for our newsletter or check out our Instagram to stay updated! On that note, I’d love to share seven remote work opportunities available this November. These roles are hot and going fast! 1. Karat If you’re a developer or a coder, you’ve probably been through a technical interview before. While I’m not a developer, I can imagine these are challenging and daunting!

Remote Job Opportunities for People With Disabilities - September 2021

As summer comes to an end, I can’t believe how fast time has flown. This past month, I unfortunately got a breakthrough case of COVID-19. I was fully vaccinated and luckily was only out for two weeks, but it gave me a scary amount of medical flashbacks. For the past two years, I’ve been in remission from Lyme disease and have been overall doing well. I’ve experienced minor symptoms from time to time, but haven’t needed treatment of any sorts. Thinking back to living and working with Lyme, it was so complicated for me to disclose this to my employers. I felt an immense amount of shame and fear in telling my managers that I was ill. If you haven’t read my story before, you can read my experience here. Now, with COVID, it felt so easy to talk to my clients and coworkers. Nobody questioned me or second-guessed my need for time off. For a few days, I felt angry that I went through all that turmoil in the past, but now after a pandemic, the world seems to accept illness in the workplace, and even empathizes with others. Why is that fair? In a lightbulb moment, I realized that the world has gotten here because of people like you and me: people who are advocating for the rights of those with chronic illnesses and disabilities and being open about their stories. The attitudes of employers are changing because advocates have been working tirelessly over the last 30+ years to change the workplace. While I, along with many of you, am angry about the way the business community has treated those of us  living with chronic illnesses and disabilities, I am hopeful that we truly are on the brink of change. I’m grateful for the employers who are stepping up every day, rethinking inclusivity and actively seeking out talent with varied health needs. Our work is making a difference, and your stories and support make all the difference! If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable , a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community!

Daily Harvest I tried Daily Harvest for the first time this year and I was beyond impressed with their at-home meal delivery service. It saved me when I was sick of cooking every single night after work. I was especially excited when I heard that they’re one of the fastest-growing companies in the food industry and they are hiring for tons of positions! From the start, Daily Harvest has been committed to serving the communities they operate in and, as they’ve grown, their efforts have too.

Remote Job Opportunities for People With Disabilities - August 2021

I blinked and it’s already nearing the end of summer! Happy August to my spoonie friends and readers. Writing this article, I was preparing to head home to Cape Cod to celebrate the Forth of July with my family. I haven’t been home to Massachusetts since 2019, which feels like an eternity ago. While I was excited for a mini-vacation, I’m also beyond thrilled about the amount of flexible work opportunities I’ve seen pop up in the last few months. A year and a half ago, when we launched Chronically Capable, it felt a bit like “pulling teeth” to get employers to understand the benefits of including those living with chronic illnesses and disabilities in their workplaces. Now, 18 months later, we are inundated with new employers joining our platform who are eager to get to know our community. Not only are these employers investing in us, but they are ready to roll their sleeves up and learn.

June: Remote Jobs for People With a Disability or Chronic Illness

Happy June! Summer is right around the corner and I personally can’t wait to start writing these articles poolside. I also can’t help but reflect on the summer of 2017. I had just graduated from Boston University and was ready to take on the workforce. Two weeks after my graduation, my doctor informed me that we had exhausted all efforts at battling my Lyme disease. There was one option left that was in reach — a PICC line. For those of you who aren’t familiar, a PICC line is a peripherally inserted central catheter. In simple terms, I would have to get a permanent IV placed in my arm. I was 21 years old, I just graduated college, and now I would have to get a PICC line? I remember the waves of emotions that followed: fear, anxiety, shame, anger. At the same time, there was one little piece of me that felt a sense of hope. Maybe this would finally rid me of the disease that had just stolen three years of my life. It was a sunny day in June 2017 that I sat in the passenger seat next to my mom as we drove to New Hampshire to get my PICC line placed. That summer, I spent most of my time inside. I couldn’t swim, I couldn’t sweat, so what was I supposed to do? I remember feeling so trapped in my own home; much like I have felt during the COVID-19 pandemic. The one thing I held onto during this time was that sliver of hope. I know that 14 months into the pandemic we are all feeling restless. Many of us are used to spending time inside our homes, hospitals, doctors offices. But this year has still been hard. I hope we can all find time to get some air this summer — to be outside — and that we can all keep holding on. If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable , a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health.

May: Remote Jobs for People With a Disability or Chronic Illness

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and if you’re like me, this past year has taken a toll on your mental health. If you’re feeling this way, please know that you are not alone . Even before COVID-19, the prevalence of mental illness was increasing. According to Mental Health America , “in 2017-2018, 19% of adults experienced a mental illness, an increase of 1.5 million people over last year’s dataset.” This means that one in five adults in the U.S. will experience mental illness each year. Yet, not enough people will seek help. The devastation of the pandemic has had a marked effect on people’s mental health, including my own. I have said this before, but I am by no means a healthcare professional. I will, however, share my experience openly and honestly so that nobody has to feel like they are in this fight alone. As someone running a business, I am fortunate to not have lost my job during the pandemic. During past economic downturns, it has been found that job loss is associated with increased anxiety, depression, distress and low self-esteem. Losing a job is painful at any point in time, but when you add in a global pandemic, the pressure can feel unsurmountable. I am here to tell you that as someone on the other side (working to bring employment opportunities to disadvantaged communities), employers are recognizing the impact the pandemic has had on their employees’ mental and physical health. They aren’t just recognizing it, though: they are acting on it. We have seen a huge increase of employers looking to hire chronically ill and disabled job seekers. We have also seen employers investing large sums of money into education and resources to support the health and well-being of their employees. While this has been a devastating year for so many people, I have a newfound hope that this year has shaped the future of work for the better. We have seen not only the benefits of remote work, but also how easy it is to make accommodations. I am confident that we are at a tipping point in our work culture and that most workplaces will not go back to the dusty, outdated ideas and practices that they held prior to the pandemic. If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable , a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community! If you want to keep up with our work and our job opportunities, be sure to sign up for our newsletter or check out our Instagram to stay updated! On that note, I’d love to share seven remote work opportunities available this May. 1. Quartet Health Speaking about mental health, there’s no better employer to start off with than Quartet Health.

April 2021: Remote Jobs for People With Disability or Chronic Illness

I’m currently writing this article from an airplane. It feels quite surreal given it’s the first time I’ve flown in a long, long time. I was fortunate to get vaccinated this month and finally have the opportunity to travel with my family. So here I am, on a plane in the middle of the sky, writing my twelfth remote jobs article for The Mighty. It’s been just over one year since I began writing these articles. Looking back, so much has happened in this past year yet at the same time, it’s as though nothing has changed at all. When I submitted my very first article, I wasn’t wearing a mask. Nobody was. The symbolic piece of that is that I was finally feeling free, nine months after getting my PICC line removed. Then came the mask, the isolation, the fear, the loss of freedom. All of these are things I’ve dealt with — survived. But this time it felt different. I had lived, survived and thrived with a chronic condition for years. Why was I so terrified? One piece of me that never went away during my battle with chronic Lyme was my desire to be with my friends and loved ones. While I know this is not the case for many people living with long-term illness, I hated being alone. Being around my loved ones energized me, motivated me, pushed me to heal. The past year has been incredibly isolating. So today I am celebrating the fact that I am safely traveling with my fully vaccinated family. While my mask is still on, my heart is wide open. If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable , a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community!

Remote Jobs for People With a Disability or Chronic Illness

Last month, I shared tips for managing stress. Little did I know that February was going to be the most stressful month I’ve had in a long time. Like millions of people, I was without power for a full week in Texas. I missed work, I missed a driver’s license appointment and even missed my monthly blood draw. When the lights came back on, the stress didn’t turn off. I did practice what I preached in my last article: I went back to the basics. This past week, I’ve made an effort to get outside each day, even just for 30 minutes. I forgot how curing nature can be — and how taking a break from my screen is necessary. If you’re like me (aka a millennial), you spend your entire waking hours looking at a screen. Not only is this bad for your eyes, but it can significantly impact your productivity. Let’s talk about productivity. Being productive is hard on its own — now add a chronic illness on top of it. Some days, you might be able to conquer your entire inbox or read a whole book. Other days, being productive might just mean getting out of bed and washing your face. We all have stuff to do, and losing a day (or a few hours) due to your illness may send you into panic mode. It’s important to remind ourselves that we don’t have to conquer the world in a single day, and that having a chronic illness doesn’t mean that conquering your goals is impossible. I’d like to share how I’ve shifted my mindset in an effort to avoid these panic modes. As a business owner, there is never enough time in the day. I used to create “to-do lists,” but the “to-do’s” would start to pile up and I would never make it through the list. I was so hyper-fixated on the list and all of the things I couldn’t accomplish. I read an article somewhere online about switching from “to-do lists” to “success lists.” I thought it sounded ridiculous, but I decided to give it a try. Each day, I would write down what I was able to accomplish. Some days, the list would be longer than the day before, some days it would be shorter. But I now had a list to be proud of. Again, I’m not a guru or an expert by any means. I’m just here to share tips and tricks that have helped me along the way. Oh, and jobs!  If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable , a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community! If you want to keep up with our work and our job opportunities, be sure to sign up for our newsletter or check out our Instagram to stay updated! On that note, I’d love to share seven remote work opportunities available this March. 1. Animoto I first heard of Animoto in high school when I was charged to make an animated video for a project. Now, they are an inclusive employer partner on Chronically Capable! Small world, huh? Not only is this a diverse company, but they are 100% remote and even give you a budget to set up your home office. They offer 100% health insurance coverage, equity, 401k contribution and catch this — a $600 subscription budget. Netflix for days am I right!? The Details: Position(s) open right now: UX Designer (Marketing) , Product Designer (Mobile) and more Location/s: Wherever you’re happiest How To Find Other Remote Animoto Jobs: Visit Animoto’s employer profile on Chronically Capable to view its (flexible) open positions or check out the company’s career page . 2. Open Classrooms I have been privileged to have incredible education opportunities, but I recognize that many people do not have this same access. Open Classrooms is making education accessible — to everyone. Their online platform offers education-to-employment programs and career coaching services for students worldwide. So if you’re currently in a transition phase, this company may be the perfect fit for you! They offer meal vouchers, unlimited time off, flexible timetables and insurance for you (and your family!). The Details: Position(s) open right now: Customer Support Specialist , Admissions Team Lead   and more Location/s: Remote worldwide How To Find Other Remote Open Classrooms Jobs: Visit Open Classrooms’ career page to view open jobs. The company is based in Paris with remote opportunities worldwide. 3. Horizon Therapeutics As someone with a chronic illness, I always hoped to see medical and biotechnical companies hiring people like me. Horizon Therapeutics is committed to hiring people with chronic illnesses and disabilities, and has embedded this mission in their company culture. They care deeply for the patients they serve, and also for their employees who make their important work possible. Horizon Therapeutics offers competitive health benefits, paid time off and a 401k match, among other unique perks. While their HQ is in Dublin, they do have remote roles available based in the U.S. The Details: Position(s) open right now: Director of Patient Advocacy, Case Manager, Rare Disease and more Location/s: Remote in North America How To Find Other Remote Horizon Therapeutics Jobs: To view more openings, visit the company’s employer profile on Chronically Capable. 4. Doist I’m obviously a remote-work fan (hence the company and the list I’m writing). Doist shares my same belief — and has been remote-first since Day 1. On their careers page, they lay the application process out for you: a level of transparency I haven’t seen before! My favorite perk of working at Doist is that you can create your own hours, which is so important for people living with chronic illness. They offer generous PTO, a health and wellness budget (for insurance, healthy snacks, etc), a coworking space stipend, a subscription budget and more. The Details: Position(s) open right now: Video Producer and more Location/s: Remote worldwide How To Find Other Remote Doist Jobs: Visit the company’s career page to explore remote opportunities. 5. Veho One of my pet peeves is waiting weeks for a package to arrive. Veho offers next day package delivery for $5. Speedy, huh? Veho is on a mission to reinvent shipping, and I’m here for it! Unfortunately, they don’t list anything about benefits or salary on their careers page, but they are 100% remote and have a range of roles from customer support to operations to training. The Details: Position(s) open right now: Customer Support Associate , Driver Coordinator , and more Location/s: Remote worldwide How To Find Other Remote Veho Jobs: Visit the company’s career page to explore remote opportunities. 6. Happy Mammoth We all love health and wellness companies… right? When I was in the depths of my battle with Lyme, I struggled with my gut. I hated having stomach issues on top of my other symptoms. Well, Happy Mammoth is making natural formulas so people around the world can take back control of their bodies. They offer competitive salaries and free access to books and resources. I can’t find any information as to what the benefits are but don’t hesitate to ask the hiring manager during your interview! The Details: Position(s) open right now: Content Marketing Manager Location/s: Anywhere that makes you happiest How To Find Other Happy Mammoth Jobs: Visit Happy Mammoth’s Glassdoor page to view open, remote roles. 7. Webflow A few years ago, I had no idea how to build a website from scratch. I then picked up WordPress, followed by Squarespace and then found Webflow. Webflow is making it possible for the “average Joe” to make a beautiful and dynamic website. I can attest that the platform is fabulous — and the company culture sounds just as great. With an HQ in San Francisco, more than half the team is remote across the globe. The company invests in their employees’ physical and mental well-being with health, dental and vision benefits and a monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses. And potentially the coolest benefit I’ve ever seen… they will give you a $1,000 bonus for taking your first vacation that is more than 5 days! The Details: Position(s) open right now: Social Media Associate , Community Manager and more Location/s: Remote worldwide How To Find Other Remote Webflow Jobs: Visit Webflow’s career page and pick an opening that catches your eye — all jobs can be done remotely.

Remote Jobs for People With a Disability or Chronic Illness

Well, we’ve made it one month into 2021. Phew. January was a wild month and if you’re like me, you may be walking into February feeling extra exhausted. Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed like this, I try to remind myself of the self-care basics: (1) get enough sleep, (2) eat a balanced diet, (3) maintain a healthy support network, and (4) exercise. For a long time, I thought self-care was just something that influencers blabbed about on social media. Being chronically ill, I’ve spent countless hours organizing medicine, taking medicine and sleeping. I always thought that taking care of my illness was self-care, until 2020 happened. Last year was stressful, trying and even tragic for people across the globe. Not only was I balancing outside stressors, but I was also trying to get my business off the ground during a recession. I would spend night after night staring at the ceiling, worrying about anything and everything. I was gaining weight and feeling completely out of whack. I came across an article written by a fellow contributor of The Mighty called “How Parents of Kids with Disabilities Can Practice Self- Care During COVID-19. ” No, I’m not a parent, but this article sparked something inside of me. I realized that all this time I was focusing on my illness, but not on my overall well-being. My realization was that in order for me to be a successful boss, partner, daughter, friend, etc., I need to practice self-care. This doesn’t mean I need to get massages or use exotic face masks every night, but rather, I need to invest in my mental and physical state. So, I’ve gone back to the basics. Here’s my self- care routine that I’ve been practicing successfully for the past few months: Get enough sleep: Each night I aim for 8 hours of sleep. Tired during the day? I take a quick nap and get back to work. Eat a balanced diet: I try to make sure that I’m adding veggies to my meals, even if I have to hide them. I also make an effort to drink 64 ounces of water each day. Maintain a healthy support network: Quarantine is hard and I often find myself craving social interaction. I’ve said goodbye to Zoom happy hours and replaced them with calling one positive friend a day. In the past few months, I’ve made deeper connections with my friends — across the globe. Exercise: I’m the last person you’d ever see at a gym. Exercise doesn’t have to mean lifting weights or running a 5K before work. I’ve been walking every day, aiming for 10,000 steps per day. Getting fresh air and moving has done wonders for my mental health. I am by no means an expert in self-care, but I wanted to share these simple practices that I’ve implemented into my life this year. It’s hard to manage work, an illness, relationships, and your overall well-being, but finding the right balance has been key for me during this wild year. If you are new to these monthly articles and wondering why I’m writing about all of this, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable, a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill + disabled jobseekers to flexible job opportunities. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health.

Lime is quite literally reinventing transportation and helping people get where they need to go quicker, easier and more affordably. While the company has locations all over the world and many jobs are city-specific, Lime also has tons of remote job opportunities. It doesn’t list the specifics regarding employee benefits, but Lime’s job listings state it offers comprehensive salary and benefits. If I find out more info, I’ll be sure to update this post. The Details: Position(s) open right now: Workplace Associate, Customer Support Content & AI Manager, and many more Location/s: Anywhere that makes you happiest How To Find Other Lime Jobs: Visit Lime’s career page to explore remote and location-specific opportunities across the globe. 7. Chess.com Prior to binge watching “The Queen’s Gambit” on Netflix, I didn’t know anything about chess besides that it was a long and challenging game. The show inspired me to get a chess board, and I’ve been reading up on Chess.com about tips and tricks from other chess enthusiasts. So, all of you passionate chess lovers will love this company. Not only would you have the opportunity to surround yourself with other chess enthusiasts, but you’d get to work for a 100% remote global company. At this time, I don’t see any information regarding compensation and benefits.

The pandemic has drastically affected everyone across the globe but according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1 in 5 workers with disabilities lost employment, compared with 1 in 7 workers in the general population. Our community has continued to be left out of the workforce and now is the time for change. These stats may just be numbers to some people, but to me, they are my motivation for continuing to build and grow Chronically Capable. If you are new to these monthly articles and wondering why I’m so passionate about remote opportunities for all, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable, a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to flexible job opportunities. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community! On that note, I’d love to share seven remote work opportunities available this January. 1. Swiftly During COVID, one thing I’ve really missed is public transportation. I miss riding the metro all around the city and knowing I always had a reliable way to get where I needed to go. Swiftly is improving public transit across the globe, offering its data technology to public transportation companies.

Work-From-Home Jobs for People With Disabilities and Chronic Illnesses

It’s officially the holiday season! While this year’s festivities look quite different than the past, there is a lot to be thankful for. I am personally grateful for the community I’ve found of chronically ill and disabled people who share similar experiences, stresses and fears. Communities like The Mighty make me feel less alone this holiday season. I’m also feeling thankful for the companies actively making strides to be more inclusive. 2020 has been a wild year, but we have an opportunity now to take our learnings into 2021. We’ve learned that you don’t necessarily need to be physically in an office in order to be productive. Companies across the globe have gone remote — and we’ve learned that businesses can still thrive and grow with remote talent. We’ve also seen businesses needing to look beyond the typical boundaries of diversity to include those with illnesses and disabilities. These are all incredibly important changes that we must continue in 2021 and beyond. For those of you who are new to these monthly articles and wondering why I’m so passionate about remote opportunities for all, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable, a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill + disabled jobseekers to flexible job opportunities. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community!

Given it’s gone remote due to COVID-19, Bumble has opened up its opportunities for applicants worldwide.
