April 14th – Stephanie Decker


The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) conference was created to connect wound care professionals and provide the latest wound care education. This past April, Stephanie spoke at the SAWC conference about the great care she received from her wound care team — after losing both her legs shielding her children from a tornado back in 2012.

July 13th – Matthew Schrier


Over the summer, we were happy to announce that Matthew Schrier would be joining our team of managed speakers. Matthew’s story is one of survival, after being held in a torturous Al Qaeda Syrian Prison for seven months, he managed to escape. Now as a speaker, he shares his inspiring story and gives his audience a real-life educational experience that they can use in their personal and professional lives.

Mallory Brown’s year was filled with successful philanthropy efforts across the world. For her most recent trip, she went to Greece to raise money for Syrian refugees.
