Turn Your Setbacks into Comebacks

We Are Resilient


For nearly 40 years, Nannette’s life has been a living testimony to the power of resilience. Her life was instantly and irreversibly changed when at age 22, a snow inner-tubing accident left her paralyzed from the neck down. Like a wrecking ball crashing into a building and demolishing it, the spinal cord injury left her life in pieces. Buried alive in its wreckage, Nannette experienced a death to every familiar way of being in the world, but reaching deep inside herself, she discovered a God-given resilience that can be readily available for all. 

Through her life experiences and subsequent MA in Counseling Psychology, Nannette teaches audiences how to smack adversity around, wrestle it to the ground and force it to divulge its hidden pearls. She delivers practical and proven “resiliencies” with a warm, bold and sassy style. Your audience will laugh, cry and be inspired to transform their own pain into power and ultimate promise. 

The Pain, Power & Promise Message

“Pain, Power & Promise might just change the way you look at your life and the world around you forever…it is the story of a remarkable journey that redefines the word resilience.”

-Tom Rath, #1 New York Times bestselling author of How Full is Your Bucket?

“Pain, Power & Promise paints a real life picture for living out loud in full color. Read it, own its message and get after your life!”

-Jeff Olsen, Olympian, Pan-American Gold Medalist, President of Well Nourished Worldwide
