ThinkFirst Presentation

I volunteer for OHSU ThinkFirst and during this time of COVID we are not able to go to schools and do our VIP- Voices of Impact speeches. I was asked to record one and send it to the manger at OHSU ThinkFirst. Here is the speech I normally do for middle school students as part of a brain injury prevention program. I love being able to give back to such an important program and cause after having a brain injury and spine injury. I’m a voice of impact for sure. As a Certified Health Educator, this opportunity is that more special to me to gain back skills I had pre Injury of doing classroom presentations. Baby steps to get back to where I once was, but this is a good start and I have found the perfect volunteer opportunity for my education and experience and it’s closely related to my medical injuries. Some day I hope to be able to do this speech without needing to read it, the old me could, the new me has a goal to get back to there.

ThinkFirst is a National Injury prevention program.

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and am a certified health educator who knows how to navigate the healthcare system and Insurance. Always willing to help.
