Valerie Greene  

Author, Speaker, Stroke Survivor Delivering a Powerful Message of Triumph Over Tragedy

At age 31, Valerie Greene was a healthy, athletic and successful business owner until a massive stroke paralyzed the left side of her body and left her unable to speak. She was lucky to be alive. Doctors told her that she might never walk or talk again, and most of her hearing was lost. Sheer determination propelled her out of her wheelchair and into a new life learning once more how to walk and communicate.

Today Valerie is sought out as a national keynote speaker and the author of The Fire Within, delivering a powerful story of courage, determination and success. Over the years, Valerie has spoken before thousands of people throughout the United States. Shows like Larry King Live have recognized her, and many celebrities and dignitaries including Michael J. Fox, Kirk Douglas, Lieutenant Governor of Florida, the Mayor of Orlando, and the President of the American Heart Association have applauded her ongoing crusade to educate others about stroke and finding their own fire within. A captivating speaker with a great sense of humor, Valerie’s message uplifts, inspires and motivates both individuals and organizations to overcome challenges and achieve their goals.
