Meet Ann

A fall in a German bathtub in 2011 dramatically changed Ann Zuccardy’s life. The brain injury she sustained in that fall forced her reinvent herself. She took a hiatus from the corporate world as she recovered. During this time Ann gave 2 TEDx talks, multiple keynote speeches, took a humanitarian trip to Haiti, earned a master’s degree in English, and began teaching at the college level.

Ann is a sought-after presenter and coach who speaks on brain injury, resilience and reinvention, and how humor, play, and laughter impact learning and brain health. Ann is currently writing a book on how laughter and play improve brain health as we age.
