Special Guest - Lieutenant Colonel Janis Nark

Lt. Col. Nark served on active and reserve duty for 26 years in the Army Nurse Corps. She was a combat nurse in Vietnam and again during Desert Storm. With her comrades accusing her of wanting to be a stand-up comedian, she became a professional motivational speaker following her retirement from the Army. She is a published author in more than 12 books, including four editions of Chicken Soup for the Soul. Col. Nark has shared the podium with such dignitaries as General Colin Powell and President Bill Clinton. As a speaker, Col. Nark has stories of laughter and tears. She knows and relates to stress and change. Her specialty is finding control in chaos, and her message is one you will never forget.
