Paralyzed Veterans of America’s: Women Veterans Empowerment Seminar

Wednesday, Nov 18, 2020
11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET


This event already happened.

Hear and reflect on an inspiring message of perseverance and maintaining perspective in leadership and in life from of an American hero who has triumphed over personal tragedy to achieve greatness, World Champion status, and who has dedicated her life to chasing remarkable accomplishments while giving back to others, particularly those who face challenges similar to her own. Melissa Stockwell proudly wore the uniform of the United States Army, where she very nearly made the ultimate sacrifice for her country. Today, she proudly wears the uniform of Team USA as a World Champion athlete. Melissa shares her remarkable story, from the battlefields of Baghdad to the Paralympic Games, in an emotionally powerful presentation that will inspire you to see ability not disability, to maximize what you do have, and forget about what you don’t, and to apply, as she details, “…the amazing power of choice.”
