    Keynote speaker:  Stephanie Staples, CSP

    Stephanie Staples is a reWired nurse who has traveled from the Mayo Clinic to the Middle East delivering idea-packed programs proven to increase feelings of hope, happiness, empowerment and ability to apply actionable positive change for busy healthcare professionals. As a multi-titled author with eclectic qualifications that combine learnings from her background in healthcare, journalism, fitness and communications – Steph has some unique insights and tools to share that will positively impact your work and home life.

    Her roots run deep into long term care (since age 15, in fact) and her present has taken its wings with long term care – most everything she knows she credits to those in their last quarter of life.

    Steph is a Mom of three, Lolli of two, wife of one and a last-placed triathlete. This is her first time in Idaho and she couldn’t be more delighted!
