Tracey Conway was 38 when her life changed forever.
The Emmy-winning actress was taping a television comedy show when she literally dropped dead from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Twenty minutes later, paramedics shocked her heart into beating again. Overcoming 20-to-1 odds, she survived and turned her miraculous recovery into poignant yet laugh-out-loud presentations that have wowed everyone from maximum-security inmates to Oprah Winfrey.
Tracey‘s inspiring, informative talk Dead: Been There, Done That! is a rousing anthem that motivates women and men to get passionate about their health and life priorities in a presentation that has entertained and engaged audiences from Boise to Budapest. In this version tailored especially for PSCDA, Tracey will discuss life after death and the impact it had on her career.
Prior to Tracey's death and resurrections, she spent the 90s making people laugh as a cast member and writer on Seattle‘s popular sketch-comedy television show, Almost Live! The series aired on NBC affiliate KING 5 TV and Comedy Central. An internationally acclaimed speaker, she offers a unique perspective of surviving much more than the roller-coaster perils of "show biz," the economic recession and launching a one-woman business.
