Have we forgotten how to be neighborly?   It’s not totally strange…I get blog ideas while I’m walking around my neighborhood, especially when I’m working on creating a new education session.  My head clears and thoughts start to roll. I recently finished ready the surgeon general’s re...

Diversity is US!

How a Concussion Changed the Course of my Life and Business
In a matter of a week, I went from putting in 8+ hours a day to less than two. I took naps every day for months.
