Tap your untapped beauty
Definitely Not Your Typical Girl Next Door: At the age of fourteen, I became the youngest Avon lady on the block. Knocking on the doors of my mother’s friends and showed them how to look and feel beautiful.
This part time job started me on the path in the health and beauty industry and over the last 3 decades I have honed my skills, studied and worked with some of the world’s top cosmetic chemists, makeup artists, doctors, and entrepreneurs.
A freak accident in a German bathtub changed the way Ann Zuccardy perceived the world. With no protocol for rehab from the resulting brain injury, Ann resolved to make her own way. In the process, she created a mild traumatic brain injury support group and became an advocate for others.
In her 2013 TEDx talk, How a Brain Injury Made Me Smarter, Ann redefined what being smart meant to her. When her brain no longer allowed her to live her life and earn a living the old way, she discovered the innate qualities that keep creativity alive in all of us. Ann has used these creative insights (what she calls “the new smart”) to reinvent her career and personal life.
In her 2014 TEDx talk, Ann revealed what she learned about neuroplasticity through her post-TBI trials and errors. Now, as a consultant and speaker, she helps businesses and individuals get smarter… without whacking any heads!
