The TBI Therapist Podcast with Dr. Jen Blanchette and Jill Griffin

This has all the makings of an epic conversation! Jill Griffin  is inspiring, candid, and doesn’t hold back from her experiences after a concussion.. She discussed sustaining a concussion while traveling to Australia. Her story of struggle and recovery from long lasting effects of a concussion shows tremendous grit and belief in herself to know what was best for her. Jill realized that she had to be her own advocate. She couldn’t just accept that she couldn’t get any better.  This belief enabled her to seek out the support and help she needed to  recover.
