“When I speak I tell the students that I can’t teach about acceptance without sharing how I came to accept it.”

Brigid speaks at many 6th, 7th, & 8th grade classes at schools in her area, bringing the idea of epilepsy awareness and acceptance to these students. She is also the founder of Amp Up Awareness, a celebration of Epilepsy Awareness and everything PURPLE featuring amazing music now in its 6th year.
