We're Moving Forward

We're Moving Forward Fun, Friends and Community After Brain Injury. An all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit facilitating activities for survivors of brain injury ages 18+ and their families.
(25)

We're MOVING FORWARD! is an evolution of a group of families whose lives have been affected by brain injury in the Metro Phoenix Area. Originally, the group started from a desire to interact with others, outside of a "support group" environment, who understand brain injury survivors and the involved recovery process.

We also welcome Thomas Evans to the WMF Board of Directors!

Thomas Evans, a third-generation U.S. Army Veteran honorably served multiple tours overseas for his country.

Since returning home, he has been passionately growing businesses through his networking and marketing consulting companies.

While serving as marketing director for a Phoenix, AZ title company, Thomas envisioned creating a real estate ecosystem where Realtors would partner with and cross-promote their trusted mortgage lenders, escrow agents, home inspectors, moving companies, interior designers, and other home service professionals. That seed of an idea grew into HOA.com where Thomas also serves as President helping connect homeowners with trusted professionals eager to serve with excellence.

Her passion is sourcing high quality, innovative products by building solid distribution channels to provide regenerative medicine & biologics to patients who need it most within the verticals of joint care, wound care, reconstructive surgery, to name a few.

Above all, Alyssa is committed to making a difference for others, a mission that is integral to her many professional and charitable pursuits.
