Noelle McNeil's Brief Biography

Life has changed dramatically for Little Silver resident Noelle McNeil, whose recovery from a near-fatal accident is chronicled in her inspirational new book called Heaven Exists.

"I really do feel like an 84-year-old woman in a 25-year-old's body," McNeil said. Her book, "Heaven Exists," was published on Aug. 31 2009 and is available for purchase online at, Barnes & Nobleand Outskirts Press Book Publishers.

McNeil now speaks at venues where she feels she can have a positive impact by sharing her story and hopes to pursue a career as a motivational speaker following graduation.

Only three percent of DAI victims make any recovery at all, and only one percent makes a significant recovery.  Her heartfelt and earnest story of the long and arduous recovery is nothing short of miraculous, while Noelle’s drive, faith and courage are an inspiration to all. 

Humor, engaging, empathetic, uplifting, sometimes heartbreakingly poignant, offering philosophical wisdom
“I feel it was my calling to tell my story so that other young women who are struggling to be physically perfect may hear how empty this pursuit can be.  I also hope to inspire others who may be facing tragedy, or horrific circumstances in their lives.” 

With incredible fortitude, the support and love of her family, and what she clearly believes is some divine intervention, this vibrant young woman walked to accept her diploma when she graduated with honors from Monmouth University in May 2010.
