“After undergoing my own personal recovery from a brain injury, I know all too well how suddenly life can change. From this experience, I have so much compassion, empathy and understanding for our clients”.
“Everyone you meet is struggling with something you know nothing about. It’s about being respectful, kind and polite”.
