Traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor and award winning author
Amy Zellmer will share with you her journey through the murky waters of a TBI. She
will enlighten you with humor and grace on the seriousness of brain injury
and concussion, and the life lessons that come with it. Join Amy as she
shares her story of recovery, and provides you with ways to help support
a loved one dealing with this invisible injury. She will give insight
into a life that even doctors don’t fully understand.
In February of 2014, Amy slipped on a patch of ice, landing full-force
on the back of her skull. She believes that the healing process begins
with the telling of your story, releasing everything that you’ve
been bottling up inside. Her goal is to share her story to help bring
awareness to this invisible injury that is misunderstood.
Amy Zellmer is an award-winning author, keynote speaker, and traumatic
brain injury survivor. She is a frequent contributor to the Huffington
Post and Thrive Global, and she also produces a podcast series for survivors
and caregivers. In November of 2015, she released her first book,
Life With a Traumatic Brain Injury: Finding the Road Back to Normal, which received a silver medal at the Midwest Book Awards.
