About the Keynote Speaker

Kerry-Egan.jpgKerry Egan is a Harvard Divinity School educated hospice chaplain and the author of On Living, a profoundly moving book about how we give meaning to our lives. An inspiring speaker, Egan talks to audiences of all kinds about some of the people she has met in her work — sharing their stories and reflecting on what they may teach us in our own lives.

Her hospice work has been featured on PBS and CNN, and her essays have appeared in Parents, American Baby, Reader’s Digest and CNN.com, where they have been read more than 2 million times. She and her family live in Columbia, South Carolina.
