#1 A Journey Through Concussion – Emma Woods

In her early twenties, Emma suffered a moderate concussion in a whitewater kayaking accident that led her on a journey to redefine who she is and find more balance in her life. We talk about her experience recovering from concussion spanning a four year period, including dealing with post-concussion syndrome. 

She faced challenges with her identity, she reset her values and found that positive things emerged from her journey. She’s now working back in her field of marine science, something she didn’t know if she’d ever have the ability to return to.
