Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch    

U.S. Army Veteran, Author

Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch is a renowned, charismatic, passionate and influential speaker with a mission to empower the next generation of leaders. Throughout her career, Kickbusch has shared her personal knowledge on becoming an effective leader in today’s global marketplace with hundreds of schools, colleges, universities, corporations, and government institutions both in the U.S. and abroad.

Born and raised along the border in a small barrio in Laredo, Texas, Kickbusch is all too familiar with the challenges of poverty, discrimination and illiteracy. Although she grew up without material wealth, Kickbusch was taught by her immigrant parents that she was rich in culture, tradition, values and faith.

After graduating from Hardin Simmons University, Consuelo entered the U.S. Army as an officer and served for two decades. During that time, she broke barriers and set records in the military where she became the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in the Combat Support Field of the U.S. Army.

Kickbusch produced two audio CD’s titled, "Shared Leadership" and "Mensaje a Mi Gente".

She also published a book titled, "Journey to the Future: A Roadmap for Success for Youth", which provides practical techniques for children to develop higher self-esteem and achieve personal goals while establishing a framework for early leadership development.
