Jennifer Pharr Davis The Trailblazer: Hiker, Speaker, Author, Entrepreneur
Jennifer gave this presentation on March 12, 2020 as COVID was changing everything in the United States and the world. It is a terrific example of her briefly addressing "the elephant in the room" before delivering a first rate keynote.
Each year, hundreds attempt to hike the 2,181 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Long-distance hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis did it in 46 and a half days to become the overall speed record holder. Hear her tell the tale.
Jennifer Pharr Davis discusses her journey of hiking the entire Appalachian Trail by herself as a recent college graduate. Importantly, she remarks how her adventure sparked a streak of deep personal growth, and she challenges the audience to recognize that adventures for all people- no matter what their background or their place in life- is not irresponsible.
