BEST is excited and honored to announce our BEST Superhero of the Month for 2018, a true beacon of light for the brain injury community and beyond.
Congratulations and BEST wishes to Maggie DePuye-Phillips!
DePuye-Phillps serves as a BEST board director and BEST guest blogger. She is also a dedicated caregiver, instructor, counselor and mentor.
Here’s what Maggie’s nominator had to say about her:
Maggie often uses the symbol of a lighthouse when talking about caregiving and BEST: a beacon of hope where the light of support is always on.
Maggie herself is that very lighthouse she describes, offering care, support and hope to fellow caregivers and the brain injury community through her hard work, generous nature, unwavering support, strong leadership, advocacy for others and boundless positive energy.
Maggie is a caregiver for a veteran with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD). Through her personal experiences, extensive research and teaching background, Maggie has been a ray of light and valuable resource for caregivers and families in both the civilian and military communities.
Through Maggie’s service as a longtime board director for BEST, she brings amazing leadership, wisdom, determination and positivity to the organization.
Maggie also serves in the deaf and hard of hearing community as a counselor, instructor and mentor.
Maggie’s superhero-powered light shine bright for our community–we are deeply grateful for all she does for others.
