Dr. Lise Deguire, author of Flashback Girl

"Lise, I have received perhaps the strongest positive feedback I have ever received in response to a speaker.  Thank you for priming the pump for us on this incredibly important aspect of diversity and inclusion."

—   Jonathan Terrell, President KCIC Consulting, Washington DC

"Dr. Deguire was an incredible presenter, and I have rarely attended a program that was as powerful and informative as this one."

"Riveting, moving, very informative presentation of the speaker's own heroic struggles with adversity, and application of those experiences to help her own clients."

—  The New Jersey Psychological Association Conference, ​"What is the Mystery of Resilience?"

"Dr. Lise Deguire captivated our audience in the telling of her courageous journey from tragic childhood accident to triumphant giver of hope.  Her life stands as the ultimate example of resiliency; the ability to experience negative events and yet maintain a sense of wellbeing."

—  Ann F. , Unitarian Universalist Church, Fairless Hills, PALecture on resilience
