She is now a sought-after Keynote Motivational Speaker who gives audiences fun—yet practical actions on how to overcome stress, handle change, be more resilient, and live a life that matters.

Stacy Pederson’s stand up comedy and outlook on life began with a diagnosis of a terminal illness with her first husband. She began a difficult journey fraught with failure—a failed marriage, single parenting, job loss, broken dreams, and financial ruin.

Pederson now has a deep understanding of the universal need we all have for hope, love, joy, and laughter. She uses her perspective to add depth and inspiration to her performances.
