Caregiver, Co-Founder and Past President
A helping personality by nature, Joey put that inclination into an academic pursuit to better help her husband, Charlie, who was wounded in Iraq in 2005. She’s now a medical assistant and brings that knowledge into her care for Charlie’s TBI, cognitive impairment, PTSD, severe back injury and a myriad of other physical injuries he sustained from multiple IED blasts. In 2007 they returned to their home state of Michigan after Charlie’s medical discharge from the Army and are raising three children.
Joey is looking forward to sharing her PTSD knowledge and her resources with caregivers who may need help and support.
