Guest Speaker

Trisha Meili
author of  I Am The Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility

TRISHA MEILI is the author of the best-selling memoir; I Am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility. Hers is the story of resilience and the capacity of the human body and spirit to heal—about support that allowed Trisha to move from victim to survivor, reclaim her life and become whole. She was an investment banker in 1989 when, during a run in Central Park, she was viciously beaten, raped and left for dead. The recovery of her physical and mental abilities taught her valuable lessons for anyone facing seemingly insurmountable crises. Her story has encouraged people worldwide to overcome life’s obstacles—regardless of what they might be—and get back on the road to life. She is an active volunteer in Jacksonville and a member of Women’s Giving Alliance (Jacksonville, FL).
