Alisa Marie survived not only one brain injury, but she had three. She is no stranger to rehab. She has had occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy many times both as an inpatient and as an outpatient. Alisa Marie likes to remind folks as she refers to her brain injuries, "This isnt the ending to your life, it's a new beginning." What a positive, upbeat attitude!

A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices! To learn more about me, please visit my blog and website.
