Brain Education Strategies & Technology



Kristi Pero is a retired substitute teacher and works as a co-curriculum designer and trainer for BEST. Following a brain injury herself, she enrolled in Coastline Community College’s Acquired Brain Injury Program. Although not tech-savvy before her accident, Kristi soon saw how the strategies she mastered in Michelle’s class were vital to her maximizing her own independence, and she found her passion for helping others living with brain injury to use technology in their everyday lives.
