Susan E. Bennett (1955 – 2020)


Since creating this organization in 2015, Sue Bennett had been laying the groundwork necessary to expand both in the services provided and the number of individuals reached. Sue’s vision was a full-service organization that provided comprehensive programming to those with neurologic conditions and their families, trained practitioners in best practices to enhance outcomes in this population, developed interdisciplinary teams to better manage chronic neurologic conditions, supported research into wellness interventions, and provided funding to other organizations or individuals in need. Her vision is still what guides our organization and her influence can be sensed in all that we do.
