Richard Wagar

Executive Director

Richard believes that brain injury survivors deserve more help than they currently receive. A former executive coach and trainer, Richard struggled to find help while recovering from his own brain injury and wanted to help smooth the path of others undergoing similar challenges. “I want to change the way brain injury survivors are treated, both collectively and individually.”
