Event Keynote Speakers

    • Stacy L. Pearsall got her start as an Air Force photographer at the age of 17. During her time in service, she traveled to over 41 countries and attended the Military Photojournalism Program at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. During the three combat tours, she earned the Bronze Star Medal and Air Force Commendation with Valor for combat actions in Iraq. Though combat disabled and retired from military service, Pearsall continues to work as an independent photographer and is an author, educator, military consultant, public speaker and founder of the Veterans Portrait Project.

    • Chris Buckley is a speaker, teacher and coach who works with men and women to lose weight, improve their relationships and transform their financial situations using a coaching method that changes their habits and underlying beliefs. While going through his own personal struggle with divorce, Chris learned first-hand that overcoming habits and changing beliefs can be difficult and feel insurmountable when trying to do it alone. Chris developed a passion for helping people transform their lives after dealing with depression, nearly losing everything, and picking up the pieces after the dust settled. He now helps individuals break free from the situations that seemed impossible to change. His approach helps them to take action and get results so they can experience the life changes they desire.
