Ashley B. Wingfield, an associate at the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, was recently appointed to the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado Board of Directors. As a board member, Wingfield will help organize educational, fundraising and recreational events as well as contribute to policy initiatives. A family connection to brain injury inspired her to give back to the Colorado brain injury community.
Originally called the Colorado Head Injury Foundation, the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado is the only statewide nonprofit dedicated exclusively to improving the quality of life for individuals with brain injuries and their families. The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado also provides educational resources that range from facts and figures to brain injury prevention. Since its 1980 inception, the organization has held numerous conferences, fundraisers and summer camps and is a member of the Colorado Brain Injury Collaborative, which lobbies legislative issues related to brain injury.
