Angie Smith is our Director of Programs and Services since 2015. She graduated from Memorial University with a Bachelor of Social Work and is certified in Interdisciplinary Palliative Care from McMaster University. She is dedicated to supporting survivors, caregivers and family whether it is during acute recovery, helping with grief and loss, or adjusting to a new normal. Her passion is advocating on behalf of persons with disabilities in the larger policy and legislation network of our province. Angie presents educational sessions on brain injury prevention and management and creates community partnerships with those who work toward similar goals.
If a brain injury survivor calls NLBIA, they will reach Angie who will offer them resource counseling, refer them to the most appropriate programs for their needs and offer support. Presentations and educational talks are also available for any group who may have a professional or educational interest in concussions or traumatic brain injury. Outside of the NLBIA, Angie is an avid reader, amateur painter, election campaign volunteer, pet owner and mother of two boys. Her goal is to make the world a safer place in which everyone can grow!
