Who are we?
The Think Ahead Group (TAG) is a group of young professionals who are passionate about brain health.

What do we do?
TAG is teaching people how to think about the current and future health of their brains. We raise money to support research at the Center for BrainHealth that discovers and implements new ways to understand, protect, and heal the human brain.

What is your involvement with TAG?:
I'm the volunteer chair for the TAG Board, so I coordinate volunteers for all the events throughout the year.

What was your favorite part about Derby Party this year? :
My favorite part about Derby this year was the Kendra Scott surprise boxes! I thought they were a fun addition and raised a lot of extra funds for us!

Why are you a part of TAG? :
I am passionate about TAG because I'm a speech-language pathologist who works with stroke, TBI, and dementia patients every day so I know how much the Center for BrainHealth's research impacts people affected by brain damage. TAG brings awareness to young professionals and helps more people become involved. It's such a great cause.

Do you have any fun trips or summer plans coming up? :
I will be going to Haiti next week with a group of friends for a mission trip with Mission of Hope!
