    Live Discussion with Katie McKenna: professional speaker, life coach and bestselling author, living in Brooklyn --- May 28, 2020 @ 5pm via Zoom

    On a sunny morning bike ride in Brooklyn, 24-year-old Katie McKenna was forever changed when she was run over by an 18-wheeler. What began as a journal entry on a borrowed laptop during her extended hospital stay, became the best-selling memoir, How to Get Run Over by a Truck.  Katie now travels the country, speaking to a vast array of audiences on how to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles with resilience, hope, humor and gratitude. 

    Ben sat down with Katie to discuss how she persevered through adversity and to share tips on staying motivated and positive during challenging times.
