Biography

A freak accident in a German bathtub in 2011 changed the way Ann sees life.

With no protocol for rehab from the resulting brain injury, Ann made her own way.  She later learned that the techniques she figured out through trial and error were backed up by neuroscience.  She realized she didn't want to be known as a brain injury expert, but instead wanted to use what she discovered as a platform for teaching new ways of thinking about how we think. She backwards engineered her brain injury recovery to create The New Smart, a customized approach for quick, innovative, creative thinking to improve leadership effectiveness, productivity, and ability to deal with change.

In 2013 Ann launched a speaking career with her first TEDx talk at TEDxPhoenixville, How a Brain Injury Made Me Smarter. In 2014, she presented her second TEDx talk at TEDxBattenkill, How Being Unsafe Makes You Smarter.

Using the ingenuity and creativity she discovered in her brain injury recovery along with nearly 3 decades as a professional writer and over a decade as a social media strategist, she realized she could inspire new ways of thinking in others to move ahead in business and in life.

Businesses and non-profits hire Ann to speak on a variety of topics including:

  •  NeuroPLAYsticity (i.e., adaptation, play, humor, and curiosity for making our brains smarter.)
  •  Social media marketing secrets.
  •  Wellness, mindfulness, and mental resilience.

Audiences love Ann's funny, compassionate, and approachable style.

Ann is a long-time expert and well-known personality on major social media platforms who provides creative content and adeptly navigates changing digital landscapes and business trends.
