Guest Speaker: Colonel Nicole Malachowski

Tuesday, June 4 at 8:00 a.m.

A leader, a combat veteran, the first female pilot on the United States Air Force Thunderbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, a White House Fellow and advisor, and an inductee into the Women in Aviation International Pioneer Hall of Fame, Colonel Nicole Malachowski’s distinguished 21-year Air Force career exceeded her wildest dreams.

However, the dream came to an end when a devastating tick-borne illness left her unable to speak or walk for ten months. An indomitable spirit, Nicole fought back against overwhelming odds and prevailed.

Drawing on stories from her career and personal life, Nicole inspires audiences to rethink the challenges they face every day. She urges them to go beyond resilience and become resurgent. She empowers people with three key beliefs: failure and risk are the price of entry for achieving something great; sometimes you need to yield to overcome; and her personal mantra - "nobody wants to lead a scripted life."
