About the author
Dawn Corbelli served in the Air Force for three and a half years as a young adult and has a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Behavioral Science. She considers being married for 32 years so far, one of the greatest achievements of her life. Being a stay-at-home mom for many years, until her children approached adulthood, is something that was incredibly meaningful and fulfilling. Her family is her priority. Although struggling with mental illness and traumatic brain injury makes achieving some goals difficult for her, she is a tenacious fighter and does not give up. As an employee of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Colorado, Dawn was presented the "Giraffe Award" which is an award given annually to an individual that "sticks their neck out." This award acknowledges that with courage and determination, she increased mental illness awareness and reduced stigma by expressing herself in the media and by giving presentations to groups. She taught classes to families and friends of the mentally ill about mental illness. Dawn's dream of becoming an author has finally come to fruition. Dawn Corbelli is an advocate dedicated to helping others realize what life with a brain injury entails and to help brain injury survivors, their families, friends, and caregivers know they are not alone. Dawn has a positive outlook on life and continues to keep her strong faith in the Lord. Dawn Corbelli currently lives in Colorado Springs, CO, with her husband Greg, and both of her daughters, Kylie and Veronica.
