Marcia Pelletiere
An Artist's Journey of Recovery from Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
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. Her presentation about that time includes the story of her recovery journey, along with her original poems, sound, digital paintings, and video, to offer listeners a immersion and 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 has given presentations at Walter Reed's National Intrepid Center for Excellence, as well as Psychiatry Grand Rounds at Montefiore Medical Center (the University Hospital for Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NYC), and for the Clinician's Ear series at the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Humanities at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.
