Category Archives: Dr. Bruce – NW EyeCare Professionals

It was beautiful….from start to finish!

What a fabulous day!! I met a friend at NW EyeCare Professionals, and introduced her to Dr. Macson Lee, who would be her Behavioral / Neurological Optometrist. Both she and her husband were beside themselves with his knowledge, understanding, and how one visit made such a huge difference!! I met & had a great conversation with a wonderful man in the waiting room who left carrying a signed copy of ‘Learning to Make Toast’. He was thrilled!! Then Husband & I picked up some donations for Oregon Impact’s fundraiser, Merry & Bright that’s being held on November 30th at the Abernathy Center in Oregon City.

God is sooooo good!!!

It was such an honor to be asked to sit with a patient of Dr. Bruce’s today. She recently was hurt in a car crash, which resulted in a TBI. Her injury devastated her, but given a copy of ‘Learning to Make Toast’ from one of Dr. Bruce’s tech’s days ago to help give her hope. Then I surprised her with a visit and what a surprise it was! She doesn’t live in Oregon and when she met the woman the book was about, she couldn’t stop crying she was so overwhelmed and appreciative. We’ll be staying in touch even when she moves back home to Alaska.

It feels so good and so right living a purpose filled life!

I’m very blessed!

It was great to be back volunteering today and see my buddies at Good Sam. Especially my gardening partner Maria Bruce 🌷 and how cool on the way to wait for my bus, I ran into Justin Wojciechowski!! I also sold two books (Learning to Make Toast) and have a book signing at Good Sam on August 8th in the garden.

It was a good, good day!!!

It was exhilerating!!!

My interview today with Scott Stevenson from Civil Tongues Toastmasters at Open Signal went great! We were both relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. They’ll be sending me a link to it in a couple weeks which I’ll post on Facebook and my website. If I can help at least one person, then I’m still headed in the right direction.

Always moving forward~~~~~

No writer’s cramp here!!

Phewwww! I got the 400 copies of ‘Learning to Make Toast’ signed today that Dr. Bruce Wojciechowski purchased . It was exhilarating signing so many books for a man I love like a brother and admire for the genius work he does with the brain injured community!!

God bless you Dr. Bruce! The world is a better place because of you!!!

THIS is why I do what I do!!!!!

Episode 20- Joan and John Miller | Happie Heads
Posted on February 19, 2018 by Michael Jensen

Joan and John are a delight. Witty, rambunctious, and sincere are just a few adjectives I could use to describe….

A Sunday complete with touching more lives!

 What a great interview Husband & I had this morning with Michael Jensen of the podcast Happie Heads. He asked fun and important questions about how both of us did, and still are, walking down our path of brain injury. He even bought a copy of ‘Learning to Make Toast’ which he will promoting on the podcast!

An amazing day, an amazing Doctor!

I saw Dr. Elizabeth at NW EyeCare Professionals (Dr. Bruce Wojciechowski) & she made me cry; tears of joy!!! She shared with me that she pretty much knew she was going to specialize in Neuro Optometry and after she heard me speak at Pacific University with, and about Dr. Bruce, it sealed the deal! She wanted to intern with him and now is his resident! I have never received a greater compliment then to have a student want to learn from, and be as dedicated as Dr. Bruce!!! THAT’S why I do what I do!!! For the community I love so much!!!

God bless brain injury!

A fabulous day!!!!

The interview Kelly Sharp and I had today with Joey Harrington went fabulous! He’s got to be one of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet with a really quick sense of humor too. I found out I went to high school with his mother-in-law, and my brother-in-law Christopher Flury worked on her house! Small world for sure. The piece will be airing next Wednesday 10-11 at 4:00pm. He also gave me great contacts for speaking and said to use him as a reference, and talked about how to set me up to appear on national TV. It was a good, good, day!
