Keynote Speakers

Liz Huntley Pic

Liz Huntley

Liz Huntley is a full-time litigation attorney, a dedicated child advocate, a nationally renowned motivational speaker and published author – all with two daughters, a son, and a husband. Some might call her superwoman. But possibly most notably, she has a phenomenal life story. Growing up in a nightmarish childhood with all odds against her and influences of abuse, neglect, and drug addiction, Liz should never have become who she is today. No human imagination could have predicted it. Her life-changing moment came on her first day of first grade when her teacher spoke the emboldening words, “Elizabeth, you’re going to be the brightest student I ever have.” Those words produced a powerful wake of hope whose current has proven unstoppable.
