"My career and my experience in the medical field and neuro world, combined with my passion of horse-back riding, is what turned me into a self-proclaimed helmet enthusiast. I see a huge amount of trauma at both jobs, especially those related to motor vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, and horse-back riding. Of course, not all accidents are preventable, but the risk of what we do as equestrians can be significantly decreased by proper safety equipment, specifically helmets. I CANNOT fathom how people choose not to wear helmets during their extra curriculars, but then again, I've witnessed the dark side of that choice as I care for my patients.

Due to the nature of my job, I've unfortunately seen just how vulnerable the brain is, and why I choose to protect mine with Trauma Void helmets."
