Speaker Bio:

Sharon Lacey has had more adventures in the past ten years than most people
experience in a lifetime.  In addition to being a sought-after keynote
speaker, Sharon is also an internationally touring headlining comedian. She
performs in comedy clubs all across the USA and Canada, and has been to Iraq
twice to entertain our troops. She recently returned from her fourth trip to
Africa, where she performs stand up comedy for Ugandan audiences in two of their
tribal languages.

All of this comes after Sharon’s earlier careers as a radio dj, television
news producer, and a national award winning middle school teacher.

Sharon is the author of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to
Dementia”.

crowd and getting to know the people involved. Very fun lady!” -Firiel S.
