About Amy's Mission

I am a mom, author, digital publishing enthusiast, and entrepreneur writing books and leading workshops designed to entertain and motivate us to take action. My mission is to take the bad things that happen and make us feel rotten and spin them into stories and how to books that help others.

My life was defined by sports related brain injury and subsequent mental illness. As a young adult the loss of someone I loved to brain injury was numbing and changed my life. As a career sports scientist and psychologist I was curious about the connection between traumatic brain injury (TBI) and mental illness. What I found during research for the book Three O’clock was a connection between evolution, how athletes might be wired, TBI, and mental illness.

From there I wrote Rewire, a how to book about taking your negative feelings and turning them into success and happiness. Available for workshops and speaking engagements my mission is to help as many people as possible.

 

 

Amy is a results oriented, transformational leader. Her friendly demeanor, strength of character and true role modeling behaviors makes others naturally gravitate her way. In my own experience, leaders need to inspire and get others to "buy into" new pathways to change. Amy has this skill and many, many more! She is a real asset to any person or organization!

Sports Related Brain Injuries – The Numbers

Let’s look at the numbers –

If you love an athlete in a contact sport the numbers are terrifying:

⇒Approximately 1.6-3.8 million sports and recreation-related head injuries occur each year in the United States alone

⇒Girls are at greater risk to get a head injury in sports than boys

⇒Head injury can cause mental illness – in fact, the risk of developing  depression, mania, obsessive-compulsive disorder, psychosis, and other illnesses increases 400%  with head trauma
