It Just Is

Exercise is Good for the Brain

This past week’s Pilates classes have gone really well! Even though Friday’s class was still small, a few more people came than last week, and there was a much bigger turnout for Saturday morning’s class!

Being From IL, People Want To Know What I Think of Law Suit Against IHSA

I have been asked by many people what my thoughts are on the first law suit filed against a state high school association in regards to concussion.  With this coming in my “home” state of Illinois, people figured I would have a strong statement or unique perspective.  I have struggled with coming up with exactly […]

Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?

In a time when I truly feel strongly that we should collaborate rather than look down noses’ at other peoples work and words within the concussion realm there seems to be none of that with a recent report from TSN, Canada.  Although I did get a chance to read, I really didn’t have the perspective […]

Speaking of…

During that time I have written copious posts and an ebook, Detour. I enjoy writing and getting my ideas on paper, or on a screen as the case may be.
