Speaker Bio

Colonel Nicole Malachowski defies stereotypes. The first woman pilot on the Thunderbirds, a combat veteran, and a White House Fellow, her distinguished 21-year Air Force career exceeded her wildest dreams. But the dream came to a quick end when a devastating tick-borne illness left her struggling to speak or walk for almost nine months. Having faced overwhelming challenges and adversity, Malachowski draws on her storied career and personal experiences to empower audiences to go beyond resilience and become resurgent.
