Keynote speaker Kelsey Tainsh has, at the age of 28, been through more than most will endure in a lifetime. Instead of letting her challenges weigh her down, Kelsey passionately spreads the message of what persistence and perspective can achieve - despite all obstacles. Her humorous and authentic speaking style causes both smiles and tears - and empowers her audience to bravely face their own challenges.
After successfully overcoming a brain tumor at only 5 years of age, Kelsey had a happy childhood. She was even a champion athlete! However, when she was 15 it all came crashing down. The tumor returned, followed by a crippling stroke which left the right half of her body paralyzed.
Because of this, Kelsey felt paralyzed not only physically but mentally, with fear and self-doubt. Despite facing incredibly difficult physical challenges, Kelsey worked hard to pull herself up and charge back into life. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Florida and gained employment at one of the most recognized companies in the world; The Coca Cola Company.
This remarkable young woman has become a champion for all of us.
