I had the privilege of hearing Ann Marie speak at the World Conference on Epilepsy and Brain Disorders in November 2018. her story of recovery from intractable Epilepsy was truly inspirational. Her outgoing personality, empathy and her ability to interact with people from many diverse backgrounds were exceptional. I would value the opportunity to present at other conferences with her in the future and would highly recommend her as a speaker.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Ann Gillie for about five years and was intrigued by Ann's story of trial and triumph relating to advancements in research for Epilepsy. Her trial reflected the challenges associated with day to day living and coping with unexpected and frequent seizures from Epilepsy, and as a young lady it was very tough.
The triumph was new advancements in research saw Ann chosen to have the opportunity to have neuro surgery that would give her new hope. The surgery was successful and after nine years of being seizure free Ann's life has taken on a whole new meaning. 

She did not forget the challenges of the past and is giving back in a positive way by bringing awareness to those afflicted with Epilepsy. She has written books, attended speaking engagements and advocates at the National level raising awareness to fund important new research. 

Ann is a vibrant young woman with bright future as she raises her young family in a loving and caring environment. She has triumphed in her life and continues to speak on behalf of those that live with the effects of Epilepsy. Her dream is real and her passion for hope is authentic because she knows better than anyone that life can change!
