Why am I such a passionate voice for Traumatic Brain Injury survivors?
Because when I sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury there was so little information and help available.
I already felt lost, confused, overwhelmed, and alone; and the lack of understanding and support added more suffering to how hopelessly impossible it all felt.
Since then, it has become my mission to help people living with brain injuries (and those who care about them) cut through the confusion, and discover clarity, community, and calm, so that their brains can function better and they can regain hope and live a happier life.
My second mission is to raise awareness of this often invisible and always devastating disability, so that we can bring more understanding and support to the 1.7 million individuals and their families experiencing this heart wrenching tragedy every year.
It takes all of our voices, so I am also a connector, collaborator, and educator; broadcasting not only my unique ideas, but also those of cutting edge researchers and healers that I trust.
I offer tools, resources, and support to individuals and groups. I have taught workshops, appeared on radio and TV shows, both locally and nationally, spoken at conferences and TED-like inspirational speaker events, and been a Keynote Speaker.
