We're pleased to announce that Carole Starr will be the keynote speaker at the annual conference on May 16th. Carole sustained a brain injury in a car accident in 1999, which left her unable to resume her previous life. Carole has reinvented herself by focusing on what she can do, one small step at a time. She's now an inspiring speaker and the leader of Brain Injury Voices, an award-winning survivor education, advocacy and peer mentoring volunteer group she founded in Maine. Her book: To Root & To Rise: Accepting Brain Injury, was published in 2017. Carole's 18 year brain injury journey has taught her a great deal about coping with dramatic life change. In her keynote, she'll share strategies for building resilience and moving forward after adversity. There's an entertaining story behind the unusual title of her speech--Weasilience: Handling Life's Wild Moments.
