In Fortitude: A PTSD Memoir, Apryl learns that healing from trauma is so much more than a scientific experiment.

ABOUT ME

 

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the Michigan State University Neuroscience Program where I research the effects of trauma on the brain. 

 

I also serve on the Board of Directors of the Firecracker Foundation, a nonprofit that honors the bravery of children who have survived sexual trauma by building a community invested in their healing.

 

I create art much the same as I do science: by smashing, throwing, splashing, and generally making a mess.
