Special Guest - Stacy Pearsall
US Air Force Veteran and founder Veterans Portrait Project

Stacy Pearsall is a US Air Force Veteran and founder of Veterans Portrait Project (VPP). The VPP began while Pearsall rehabilitated from combat injuries sustained in Iraq. As one of the most decorated combat photographers of our time, Stacy overcame more than the average soldier. She had to prove her mettle every day to demonstrate she deserved a position amongst the men. Pears- all will speak about overcoming sexual harassment, marginalization, and gender bias to become the first female to win the National Press Photographers Association Military Photographer of the Year – twice. Though combat disabled and retired from military service, Pearsall continues to work worldwide as an independent photographer, and is an author, educator, military consultant, and public speaker. She has recently adopted a service dog, Charlie. In November 2017, The Today Show presented Pearsall with Charlie, the “puppy with a purpose.” Charlie travels with her and is an integral part of her support system. Join us as we hear Pearsall’s inspirational story and meet Charlie, her amazing service dog!
