Imagine that one day your life is going along as usual and the next it is totally upended, never to be the same. Carole Starr’s life changed forever in 1999 when she sustained a brain injury in a car accident. She could no longer continue her life as a teacher and an amateur musician.

It took Carole many years to accept her brain injury and let go of her old life. Today, she is a keynote speaker, founder and facilitator of Brain Injury Voices, an award-winning survivor education, advocacy, and peer mentoring volunteer group, and author of the book To Root & To Rise: Accepting Brain Injury. Listen to Carole’s inspiring story in this Catching Health podcast.
