Are you looking for a keynote speaker that will inspire your audience and encourage a spirit of adventure and positivity? Look no further than Ashlee Lundvall. After a paralyzing ranching accident when she was just 16 years old, Ashlee learned that tragedy can be an avenue for change and growth. Her courage and humor will bring a smile to your face and hope to your heart. Life from a wheelchair has never slowed Ashlee down. In her upcoming book, “Lessons From A Pitchfork,” she explores the life-changing events that led her to become a wife, a mother, an avid outdoorswoman, and Ms. Wheelchair USA 2013. Ashlee lives in the beautiful mountains of Cody, Wyoming, where she enjoys camping, kayaking, and hunting with her husband, Russ, and her daughter, Addison.
Bethesda Christian Schools was fortunate to have Ashlee shared with all of our students last year at chapel. She presented a wonderful message for each age group. Her testimony is outstanding and compelling engaging her audience through the very end. We would highly recommend Ashlee as a speaker at your next program. She will inspire you not to settle, but to keep striving for what God has for you.
