Keynote Speakers

Command Sergeant Major Gretchen Evans

The Life-Changing Power of Your Rope Team

As one of the most highly decorated women to serve in the U.S. Army, Gretchen Evans had thought she had achieved her dream when she was overseeing 30,000 troops as a Command Sergeant Major. But all of that changed in an instant during a rocket attack in Afghanistan when she suffered catastrophic injuries and became deaf. Gretchen's presentation will take you on a journey from her finding her purpose in the military, to her devastating injury, to her decision to reclaim her life with the support of her Rope Team that included a service dog and a select group of friends and supporters. Between her stories, Gretchen will offer her wisdom on topics of grit, resilience, hope, and overcoming any barrier. With a heartfelt message and some lighthearted humor, Gretchen provides a keynote that inspires all of us to find our own "rope team" and to live our best lives.
