As someone who suffers from a brain injury and has overcome obstacles in her life, Shir Smith is ready and willing to help others. Shir has a passion for making people aware of brain injury and how it affects people’s lives. Shir always states, “There is no limit to your Sky, go Above and Beyond.”
Before joining the Brain Injury Alliance of Nebraska, Shir spent a large part of her life volunteering for and working with non-profit programs. From the Salvation Army to the Lincoln County Jail to Guardian Light Family Services, she saw needs that helped shape her passions and skills–guiding her to where she was meant to be–helping others to help others.
