Elizabeth has a son that was a competitive skier with VSSA/Vail Ski & Snowboard Academy. He has suffered over 10 concussions during his career and had a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) competing in the Aspen Open. His brain has never been the same since. When life was crashing down on Mitchell, Elizabeth searched high and low in Eagle County for help for her brain injured son. There was no support, no resources, no help. She finally had to find help and a supportive residential environment in Denver.
In 2017 two brain injured survivors established a support group in eagle county so Elizabeth decided to join the (leadership team) and see if her experience could help others. From that initial group, she, Steve, Diane and Leslie established HUH in order to continue to support and help the brain injured community of Eagle County.
Elizabeth is also so committed to helping the brain injured population, that she is yoga certified with both the Love Your Brain organization and Comeback Yoga; two amazing organizations that help the brain injured populations with meditation and yoga.
Elizabeth’s real dream is to have a supportive Brain Injury Care Facility here in the Valley that caters to the minor concussion person, the continual brain injury person, and to the recovering brain injury population. A place where people can get the correct diagnosis, treatment, therapies, support, and life skills that these amazing people deserve.
