The WISE Conference 2019 Keynote Speaker


Humanitarian Aid Worker
New York Times Best-Selling Co-Author

Finally after fruitless negotiations with her captors and her medical state becoming a life-or-death issue, President Barack Obama ordered Navy SEAL Team Six to attempt a rescue. On January 25, 2012 members of SEAL Team Six attacked the heavily-armed captors killing all and airlifting Buchanan and her colleague to safety. Through this experience, Buchanan learned that the human spirit is indomitable. Today, a mother of two, she will share with you how she quickly learned to find strength to face any situation– no matter how large or small the challenges or obstacles may seem. Jessica serves as an Ambassador to the Navy Seals Foundation and is also the co-author of the New York Times best-seller and 2013 USA Best Memoir Book Award, Impossible Odds: The Kidnapping of Jessica Buchanan and Her Dramatic Rescue by SEAL Team Six.

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Jessica Buchanan.
