Join us as we welcome guest speaker Melissa Kegler!

Melissa is a marathon swimmer, coach at VO2 Multisport, board member of the Northwest Open Water Swimming Association (NOWSA), and Skratch Ambassador. Additionally, as a Risk Assurance Manager at PwC, she is an ambassador of project management believing in strategic planning to achieve professional success with personal-life balance. Melissa grew up in Michigan where she learned to swim and eat doughnuts like a pro. After discovering open water swimming as an adult and relocating to Seattle, Melissa continues to develop her relationship with the water and aquatic life with the goal of helping others discover the amazing things only seen when your eyes are open beneath the surface.

Melissa shares that "the world we live in is full of wonder and we owe it to ourselves to live our life and find what we are passionate about. Hearing the passions of others helps to motivate each one of us to find what we may not know we are missing."

We're looking forward to sharing the evening with you as she shares about the things she's learned as a swimmer, how she completed the triple crown of swimming, and how it all parallels the entrepreneurial spirit.

Make sure to take the grit test: if you haven't already and know your number. We want to track your growth!
