In this episode I sit down with Amy Zellmer an award-winning author, speaker, traumatic brain injury survivor, and Editor-in-chief of MN YOGA + Life magazine. She suffered a life-changing traumatic brain injury (TBI) after a slip and fall on black ice. Since then, she has published four books that focus on concussion and TBI and, in 2019, began publishing The Brain Health Magazine.
