What’s up Sacramento? Everything? No kidding!!!
First up, it’s Women’s History Month. I am honored to be listed as a Sacramento “Unsung She-ro” by Girls on the Grid‘s SACRAMENTO WOMEN MAKING HISTORY 2014! It came as a complete surprise and I truly appreciate the recognition. View the article and be sure to check out the other profiles… Sacramento is a city full of movers and shakers!!! So proud of our women.
March is also Brain Injury Awareness Month – and this is of great significance to me. I work for Eric Ratinoff, a local brain injury lawyer who also serves on the board of BIACAL. Naturally our upcoming #Network4Cause event on March 13th at Mayahuel will support Brain Injury Association of California and it’s upcoming 2014 Walk For Brain Injury. I will also be participating in the Sacramento walk event on March 30th, the rest of our staff will be volunteering! (Look for us if you’re there, Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff!)
But wait there’s more – I have a personal connection to brain injury. Some of you may recall a close friend of mine who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) a couple of years ago from an accident. After a 2 month coma, he had a 2% chance of living and a 5% chance of walking… it is a miracle and a blessing he is alive and walking! It has been a long road to recovery and the journey continues.
Networking and charity/cause events are nothing new to me, but it’s always a little different when it’s a cause I have a personal connection with. Dear people of the world: Wear your helmet! And join me at #Network4Cause benefiting BIACAL’s 7th Annual Walk for Brain Injury – Sacramento on March 13th at Mayahuel.
