LeAnn Thieman      

Registered Nurse & Co-Author of Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul

As a renowned motivational speaker, LeAnn shares life-changing lessons learned from her daring Operation Babylift adventure, when she helped to rescue 300 babies as Vietnam was falling to the communists! Believing we all have individual "war zones," she inspires audiences to balance their lives, truly live their priorities and make a difference in the world.

Her presentations recharge and recommit employees resulting in increased retention and recruitment, saving millions in hiring and retraining costs. By inspiring people to care for themselves as they care for others, LeAnn boosts morale, creating positive people who then produce positive outcomes.

While health organizations and women groups are an obvious "niche" for her keynote addresses and seminars, her audiences have grown to include cattlemen, contractors, and corporate America. One CEO summed it up best when he said, "I'm going to live my life differently after hearing you today.” LeAnn Thieman inspires:


• to nurture ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually

• to relax and laugh and think positive

• to develop inner and outer strength to cope in our “war zones”

• to care for ourselves while caring for others


• to do extraordinary things, as ordinary people

• to make a difference in the world

• to keep the faith and never give up

• to find the courage to take risks


• to change how we respond to stress in our lives

• to make positive, good decisions in our “war zones”

• to identify and stick to our life assignments

• to balance our lives and truly live our priorities
