Before her brain injury, Carole Starr was self-employed as a corporate trainer. She was also a classical violinist and singer. In 1999, while in her home state of Maine, Carole was broadsided on the driver’s side by a vehicle going 50 mph, resulting in a brain injury. Carole was unable to return to work or music and still lives with daily brain injury symptoms.
One small step at a time, she’s reinvented herself. Carole is now a national keynote speaker, the author of the award-winning book To Root & To Rise: Accepting Brain Injury and the founder/facilitator of “Brain Injury Voices,” a nationally recognized survivor volunteer group.
