(01:15) Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition. I am delighted to welcome Kelly Tuttle to the podcast. Kelly, good morning. How are you?
Good morning. I am doing good, and I'm happy to be here with you, Stuart.
Oh, I really appreciate it. I think I said good morning for me, but it's probably not for you, is it? Because you're on the other side of the globe, and it's probably the afternoon or late afternoon. Thank you so much for sharing some of your time.
(01:39) You've got an incredible story, and I'd love for you to share your story with our audience today. First up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
Sure, definitely. Well, I'm a nurse practitioner, and I have specialized in neurology. I did that after surviving a traumatic brain injury. Since my car accident, I have loved helping people with brain injuries to continue to work, study, and live life to their fullest.
