Marcia Pelletiere
An Artist's Journey of Recovery from Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Still from "LIGHTER, DARK" video.
A car/truck accident in 2006 left Marcia with an MTBI (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury). Several years later, she began creating poems, visuals and music to try and express her inner experience of that injury. That led her to create a presentation about her journey, through which she hopes to convey -- through narrative, poems, sound, digital paintings, and video -- a visceral sense of the often-invisible effects of this shattering injury. 

Marcia is available to share her story with a variety of audiences, from doctors and other helping professionals to families and friends of brain injury survivors, She was a presenter at Psychiatry Grand Rounds at Montefiore Medical Center, NYC, and upcoming engagements include University of Virginia Medical School.
