SecondWind with Joyce

Oct 10, 2023

This is a replay of a popular episode in recent years which explores the power of neuroplasticity, the importance of understanding our brain's biology, and the potential for creating positive change.

Leigh E. Richardson has studied human behavior for over 30 years. Her initial focus was on organizational behavior then shifted to human behavior in 2003 after her son had a traumatic brain injury. Leigh has been in the ICU twice with brain injury and all of this fueled her need to understand how the brain works or why it doesn’t work. She can relate to brain dysregulation on a very personal level and she visualized what could be done for many others like her.

Leigh is the founder and clinical director of The Brain Performance Center, utilizing her MBA, MS, Counseling, and board certifications to offer state-of-the-art solutions for “brain problems.” She is currently taking her PhD in Psychology.

As a brain health expert, she regularly contributes to radio and television stations across the nation. Whether it is anxiety, ADHD, depression, insomnia, or brain injury, Leigh’s understanding of the brain and the different methodologies that can be used to organically change the brain is immense. And more importantly, they will provide the right solution for the problem.

Leigh is the author of Turn Your Brain On – To Get Your Game On, an international speaker, and a popular syndicated radio host. Leigh enjoys educating the general public on how the lifestyle choices and environmental factors impact brain health and the physiology and psychology of your mental state. She has a unique ability to connect with people, understand their situation, and win their trust.

Leigh gets inspiration from her friends, family, and clients. It is the positive change that she sees in others that motivates her to continue to learn. She just recently converted her upstairs office to an in-home art studio where she paints as a way to explore her creativity.
