 Kelsey Tainsh  Tuesday Luncheon Keynote -- Kelsey Tainsh


"I'm Not Limping!  That's Swagger!"

KelseyTainsh has been through more in her 27 years than most will endure in a lifetime.  Successfully overcoming a brain tumor at only 5 years of age, Kelsey went on to be a happy, healthy kid and a champion athlete.  10 years later, at 15, it all came crashing down when the tumor returned followed by a crippling stroke.  Her friends had disappeared,  her right side didn't function and she became paralyzed with fear and self-doubt.  Despite her significant physical challenges, she worked hard to pull herself up and charged back into life graduating magna cum laude from the University of Florida and going on to work for one of the most recognized companies in the world. 


Today, this remarkable young woman has become a champion for the rest of us.  An acclaimed professional speaker, Kelsey travels the country speaking to colleges, organizations and corporations about the power of persistence and perspective.  Her clients include:  Coca-Cola Company, Harvard Medical School, Automotive Training Institute, Society for Pediatric Anesthesia, INBOUND, HubSpot and more.


Kelsey Tainsh has also been featured in BYOU Magazine, Coca-Cola Journey, the Orlando Sentinel, Our Town Magazine and Home Magazine and National Speaker's Association (NSA) Speaker Magazine.
