Jane Jackson is the Information and Resource Director for the Brain Injury Association of Georgia and a Certified Brain Injury Specialist. She has worked with BIA of Georgia for the past 7 years and covers the state handling requests from survivors, families and the medical professionals who serve them-among many other "hats" she wears for BIA of Georgia. Working one-on-one with individuals, she provides personalized help, resources and education about brain injury and symptoms. Jane is also the wife of Waring Jackson who sustained a brain injury from a motorcycle accident 14 years ago. He was sent home after 2 weeks in the trauma center and told "if you have a headache take 2 aspirin". He looked ok, he talked ok but inside he knew something was wrong. He was one of the thousands of walking, talking "silent epidemics" you hear about in the news. He masked his changes with humor for 3-4 years before admitting he needed help. Together Jane and Waring discovered his personality change, short term memory, fatigue, depression - among other symptoms - were from his accident. Thus began their long road to rehabilitation and adapting to his "new normal".
