Today we are recognizing Meghan Leach, Support Group Facilitator in Springfield, Missouri. Here’s why Meghan facilitates a BIA-MO Support Group:

My Name is Meghan Leach and I have been a social worker since 2002. For the past fifteen years, I have worked at the Department of Veteran Affairs. My first 10 years with the VA I specialized in Polytrauma with an emphasis in Traumatic Brain Injury both inpatient and outpatient.  I was introduced to brain injury in my practicum while working on the inpatient rehabilitation unit. Throughout my career no matter what area I was working in I have served brain injured survivors and their families. It seems to be the one medical injury I have witnessed in all populations I have had the pleasure of working with.

I felt a pull to work with this unique population and was asked to assist in facilitating the St. Louis South Group.  I have seen the group expand and evolve. I’m blessed to be a part of this group!
