Keynote Speaker:
Ashley Rhodes-Courter is a New York Times and International Bestselling Author of Three Little Words and Three More Words and is the quintessential American success story.  Born in 1985 to a single teen mother, by the age of 3, she was in Florida’s foster care system where she spent almost ten years being shuttled between 14 homes before being adopted at the age of twelve. Despite her ordeal, she excelled in school because she believed that, “my education was the one thing nobody could take from me.” Ashley went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Social Work and after fostering more than 20 children, Ashley has a unique perspective on parenting, life, resilience, philanthropy, and the power of love.
