In 1998, Massari survived a devastating near head-on car crash where she was trapped and burned, conscious the entire time. Just three years later she was hit again at 60 mph and sustained a closed-head brain injury. Allison has always believed in the miraculous. Her profound journey of overcoming these two life-altering injuries gives her a genuine and direct approach to transcending life’s difficulties.

By sharing her story she motivates change – in people and in the organizations that nurture and inspire them. Incredibly, Massari views her life’s experiences as a tremendous gift, one that helped her find strength, resolve, and ultimately, her life’s work. She says, “I didn’t want to just heal. I wanted to feel peaceful. I became relentless in my pursuit to find the answers to life and to achieve self-mastery.”
