"...This writer was first able to meet Allison a few weeks ago at the Five Senses Network Dinner; a private association of artists and entertainers originally based in California, where each member performs or lectures on their expertise. It was here that everyone experienced the presence of Zopel. To see her, it is almost impossible to imagine that this petite young lady, who looks like she just finished high school, could have been in a coma for four years. As Chef Gregory states, “She looks and has the aura of an angel, experiencing pure joy by just being here in the now.” Even blind musician Louie Ray commented on feeling her calm sincerity in everything she did and the relaxing nature of her piano work."

"...As calm as Ms. Zopel is, she is also a working dynamo. After emerging from her coma like the butterfly from a chrysalis, Allison, within one year, has moved across country, been featured in the Oregonian - March 2004, Glamour magazine - January 2005, Wausau Daily Herald - January 2005, recorded, produced and distributed her Music from Within CD, which is available nationally via CD Baby or Amazon.com. She is working on a second CD available sometime in the fall, a book concerning coma experiences, website programming, music lessons and consultations on productions with other artists. The Montel Williams show in N.Y. also wanted to do a special on her but required air travel that nixed the idea. Where is Oprah when you need her?

If that was not enough, Allison’s healing piano music continues to be featured at the PDX airport in C-concourse through security, throughout this summer, with future gigs coming up at the H20 in June.

For further info you can go to either www.musicfromwithin.com for her piano work or to www.zopeljazz.org for jazz."

**Allison is now beginning to speak with people about her experience of being in a 4 year coma with severe brain injuries, describing what it was like to be in a coma from the inside, looking out, educating people more about the different levels of consciousness inbetween, how she was able to heal, as well as how we can be of better assistance to people in need of care.
